Young seedling immediately after planting often withers and dies, which are in the soil pests. They eat up the delicate roots from which the plant dies. To avoid this, you need to scare the wireworm, mole cricket and other pests from the seedling until its roots will be strengthened and there will zarubejom.
What you’ll need:
- ammonia 10%;
The process of cooking tools and processing landings
To deter pests, you need to shed the soil around the root system of the seedlings with a special compound. It is a solution of ammonia and water. In 10 liters of water is required to use 1 tablespoon of alcohol. The components are mixed directly in the lake.
Then you need to spill the prepared solution of ammonia, the soil around the seedlings, but trying to fill its leaves. We need to create around the plant ring unfavorable soil for pests. Such a weak concentration of alcohol will not burn the roots of seedlings, but quite unpleasant for insects.
Irrigation solution runs on pre-moistened soil. After its absorption, it is desirable to sprinkle the soaked ground, dry ground, to slow down evaporation and decomposition of ammonia.
This treatment of the soil around the plant is done with an interval of 10-12 days. Once the seedling is well established, its roots will become rough, then the treatment can be stopped as hard then the plant ceases to be interesting for the pests.
