How to grow good tomatoes
During the formation of tomato seedlings, before picking, they are fertilized twice, with an interval of 7 days, with any liquid fertilizers for seedlings.
When transplanted to a permanent place, they are watered or the root system is dipped in a solution of Fitosporin, which prevents infection with fungal infections and feeds the plant with microelements.
Before planting seedlings, they examine it, and the weak, diseased plants are thrown away.
Growing tomatoes includes watering, loosening, fertilizing bushes.
- Water the tomatoes with warm water at about 18-20 degrees, at least 15 degrees.
- It is better if the watering is drip. If irrigation is not drip, then the water consumption depends on the age of the plant: from 5 to 10 liters under the root every 8-12 days.
- Watering must be alternated with loosening the soil under the tomato bushes. This will protect the planting from the development of fungal diseases and ensure optimal aeration of the plant.
Tomatoes "Kazachka" for normal pollination, as well as fruit ovary, require a moisture content in the range of 65-70%. The increased humidity of the air, in addition to the development of the fungus, leads to sticking of pollen, and pollination of tomatoes does not occur.
Reduced humidity leads to the fact that the pollen scatters and does not fall on the pistil, in which case pollination also does not occur.
Tomatoes "Kazachka" are fertilized throughout the entire growing period. It is important that the feeding of this variety is carried out in a timely manner, does not exceed the norm, otherwise the plants can be ruined.
Mulching of the soil has a good effect on plants. Mulch prevents the growth of weeds under the tomatoes, as well as fertilizes and keeps the soil under the bushes from drying out. With conventional, non-drip irrigation, mulching helps break down water droplets into smaller particles and better absorb them into the soil.
