Foliar feeding of plants in June
Foliar feeding of plants in June – the most favorable period.
There is an active development of the fruit, growing shoots, and there is an active development of the root system.
At the same time, the intense multiplication garden and garden pests.
This period is well spray plants against aphids. Aphids do not tolerate potassium sulfate and various potash fertilizers.
Very well to breed his 5-10g per litre of water and spray the leaves of the trees. As well helps the ash-soap solution.
Stir 30g of ash in a liter of water and heat until boiling, after that, when the solution has cooled to room temperature, add 25g of soap.
An easier way is just to sprinkle insects and neighboring areas of dry ash. Ash is also a good foliar feeding.
The thing is that plants can absorb fertilizer not only roots but also leaves and young developing shoots.
Of course, for foliar feeding of plants concentration of fertilizer should be higher, because the root system is more sensitive and better absorb nutrients.
Feeding plants at the roots, use a fertilizer with a concentration of 1-2G per 1 liter of water and for spraying the same fertilizer 5-10g per 1l of water.
But to spray the plants only solutions of nutrient salts, that is water soluble phosphorus, nitrogen, potassium and other complex fertilizers and microelements.
And for example copper sulphate, potassium permanganate, boric acid in such concentrations cause burns the leaves, so they need to be diluted at the rate of 1 g per 1 liter not more.
More efficient feeding by spraying the underside of plant leaves, they are more susceptible to absorption, the greater the moisture from them evaporates slower and worse washed off by rain.
Foliar feeding of plants can be carried out not only in June, but the entire period from spring to autumn, with an interval of 2-3 weeks.
For fertilizing-spraying plants can only use soluble (urea, ammonium nitrate, potassium sulfate, monophosphate, in General, all complex fertilizers labeled «completely soluble».
Also after filtration, it is possible to apply nitrophoska, azophoska, superphosphate and others which when dissolved leave a residue.
Before foliar feeding of plants, you need to clearly know what they need.
