Application of the microbiological preparation RADIANCE when growing vegetables


The experiment continues

On the pages of the magazine, you can often see the publications of the head of the Organic Farming Club, Sergey Rumyantsev, in which he urges gardeners to switch to a natural farming system under the motto "Less work, higher yield". This motto is very appealing to me.

The fact is that we have a large plot with an orchard, a lot of flower beds. I am growing a stock of vegetables for the whole winter for a family of five. Naturally, I try to get a high-quality, healthy harvest, and therefore I hardly use mineral fertilizers. I focus on organic matter: I prepare composts, liquid top dressing from weeds, mulch some plantings, sow green manures after harvesting potatoes and vegetables.

To grow heat-loving vegetables, I use warm beds, based on the fruit and vegetable peelings dried over the winter, hay and foliage harvested in the summer, spilling all this with a diluted mullein. All this allows you to get pretty good harvests of vegetables and fruits, but you also have to work a lot. And the years go by, my back starts to bother me, my legs fail, so the appeal “Work less ...” is very attractive.

Last winter I attended lectures on organic farming, bought the recommended Radiance preparations, and since spring I tried to work according to the recommended method. But, alas, it was not immediately possible to carry out spring tillage with a concentrated solution of this preparation. More precisely, we did not begin to do it, since, according to the recommendations, after treatment with the solution, planting and sowing are carried out only after 2-3 weeks, and the land was already ready, and we did not want to postpone sowing for so long.

I decided to start the experiment with one bed near the stone foundation of our greenhouse, on the southern side of it. I made a fence of boards 40 cm high, chose all the land and filled the ridge with organic matter from hay, leaves and other waste, treated it with a preparation and closed the 3x0.45 m bed with foil for two and a half weeks. After this period, I made five holes there, filled them with compost and planted eggplant seedlings grown at home in accordance with all the rules of natural farming using "Shining". I installed the arcs and closed the landings with a thin lutrasil in two layers. A week earlier, the same seedlings - three plants - were planted in a control bed, prepared in the old way and without the drug. I planted peppers in the same ridge. They were under a low film cover (70 cm).

Started observing. The first two weeks did not notice much difference in the development of plants, but later I noticed that five eggplants on the experimental ridge looked much stronger, they had a color earlier and ovaries formed immediately.

According to the technology of organic farming, plantings should be sprayed with the “Shining” preparation on a weekly basis and mulched. I didn’t do this every week - it’s hard to get used to the new rules, and there was still not enough cochineine from my many lawns, since I mulch strawberries and grapes, which I grow in a high place, first of all. Mulch is needed both to retain moisture and to feed plants.

For spraying in order to save money (the "Shining" preparation is not cheap, but for my large garden it takes a lot) I prepared an infusion in a 100-liter barrel - from weeds, old jam and the preparation. With this solution, I sprayed eggplants, mulch - for its rapid decomposition, as well as planting potatoes and tomatoes - to prevent late blight. Everyone remembers that last summer was rainy. It was difficult to choose the time to spray the plantings: you will carry out the treatment with the drug, and in an hour it will suddenly rain, I think there is little benefit from it. As a result, the tops of the potatoes began to turn yellow, and later turn black - from July. The situation was better with tomatoes because they grew in a greenhouse.

I consider the experiment with eggplants to be successful, since on each of the five strong bushes, 4-5 eggplants weighing from 300 to 500 grams each were tied! Moreover, when I cut them, new fruits were tied on the bushes. By the way, eggplants like to grow under lutrasil, they stayed there until the end of October, having survived several frosts. There even managed to ripen the second crop. On the control bed, 1-2 eggplants per bush ripened, and they were not at all large.

Since the filling of the ridge with organic matter using "Shining" gave a positive result, we decided to prepare a tomato greenhouse in the same way for the next season. And when we started this work, we realized what a hard work it was. Indeed, in the greenhouse we have three high ridges 6 m long and 0.5 m wide. We had to select all the land to a depth of 40 cm and fill the beds by 90% with organic matter. First of all, we used clippings of one-year-old grapes. Using a mechanical cutter attached to the edge of the compost bin, I chopped up all of the cut branches and leaves, and then placed them in the bottom layer of the beds. The husband was asked to mow the sides of roads and ditches and used the cut grass to fill the ridges in the greenhouse. They also dragged foliage from the forest, went into business and tops from beets, carrots. We added stale sawdust there, but everything is little, little ... We hardly collected organic matter to fill one six-meter ridge, and on the second ridge we simply dug a deep groove 25 cm wide and filled it with organic matter, and we left the third one until spring. And if we take into account the fact that it is necessary to change the soil using this technology every autumn, then pensioners cannot afford it! It turns out that the slogan - "Less work ...", alas, is not yet very relevant.

I consider mulching to be a positive aspect of this technology. Of course, if you spread the dried cochineine with a layer of at least 5 cm, and not loose, but pressing it to the ground, then there will be no weeds for two weeks, and those that still break through are very easily pulled out. It's good if you manage to do this 4-5 times a summer, but where can you get so much mulch? And mulching once or twice a summer, and even with a thin layer, will not work. And then exhausting weeding awaits you again.

This is how my experiment on the use of the "Shining" microbiological preparation ended. The result is positive, but so far it has been obtained on a small area, and in order to master large areas, you need to work hard, I do not think less than usual. And yet, next season, I will continue my experiment on one tomato ridge in a greenhouse, and if there is enough organic matter, then in the open field.

Benefits of using Baikal EM-1

Baikal EM-1 is an environmentally friendly product that contains microorganisms useful for plants. It can be used to increase soil fertility, root and foliar dressing. At the same time, the application of mineral fertilizers can be reduced by at least half. And the use of natural farming methods - mulching, green manure, crop rotation, compost - together with Baikal EM-1 allows, in general, to refuse them.

Plants that have received this "vitamin cocktail" generate increased yields. According to research results, the fruits of such crops contain less nitrates and other harmful substances. Plants develop stronger, well-formed immunity allows them to fight many diseases. This means that the use of various means for protecting plants from diseases and pests is minimized.

The preparation Baikal EM-1 is recommended for use at all stages of plant development:

  • when soaking seeds
  • for preparing the soil for seedlings
  • for spraying young seedlings on a leaf
  • for foliar and root dressing of grown plants.

Also Baikal EM-1 is used to improve the soil. To disinfect the soil, 14 days before planting seedlings or before sowing seeds, you need to shed the beds with a solution of the drug of the recommended concentration (read about the rates of application of the drug below). But it is better to do this in autumn. Then microorganisms will begin their fruitful activity earlier.

The drug is successfully used in the garden, and in the garden, and in indoor floriculture. This elixir increases the vitality, survival of indoor plants, improves flowering, prevents the appearance of diseases and pests.

In an orchard, this unique remedy will increase the quantity and quality of fruits, make them more sugar-rich and tasty. For this, some gardeners simply water the trees in the near-trunk circle with a solution of Baikal EM-1.

The compost flavored with this composition rewires faster, turning into practically free humus, enriched with beneficial microorganisms. Don't believe that quality compost can be made in three weeks? It's real with Baikal EM-1!

In general, the scope of application of this natural elixir in plant growing is inexhaustible! Further - read in detail about how to use the drug for one purpose or another.

Bitoxibacillin

Another biological insecticide. Kills the larvae of the Colorado potato beetle, spider mite, cabbage moth, hawthorn, silkworm and many others. The nature of the action is intestinal. The drug disrupts intestinal functions in pests, reduces their nutrition, which leads to the death of the larva. 3-7 days - and the mass death of pests is ensured.

These are the drugs we have today. You can use them. I don’t know why we continue to use harmful chemicals ... Although there is progress. Take, for example, phytosporin, which saves the harvest of our tomatoes. This is also a biological product.

Friends, do you use biological products in the fight against pests and plant diseases?


Thorough care for perfect results

Top dressing is an essential component in growing tomatoes in greenhouses. In greenhouses, these vegetables need frequent fertilization - no less than five classic dressings. The use of new biological products based on the principles of organic farming makes it possible to completely abandon mineral fertilizing and to simplify procedures as much as possible.

For foliar processing and feeding of plants, a standard solution of the preparation "Ecomik Urozhainy" is used - 10 ml per 10 liters of water. For every 1 m2 of soil, it is enough to use 2-3 liters of solution.

After planting seedlings in the soil, the first irrigation is carried out with microbiological fertilization, providing improved adaptation, contributing to faster recovery and active growth of tomatoes. In the future, treatment with the drug "Ekomik Urozhainy" is carried out with a frequency of 1-2 times a month. When watering, it is very important to prevent waterlogging of the soil and an increase in air humidity in excess of 90%.

The use of microbiological fertilizer "Ecomik Urozhainy" promotes:

  • optimal development of bushes, improved growth, internode length, leaf size and color
  • restoration of weakened, damaged, lagging plants
  • reducing the incidence of plant diseases
  • the formation of a larger number of ovaries, their rapid and active development
  • high-quality and uniform ripening of fruits
  • increase in yield (when using a biological product from the stage of growing seedlings - up to 200%)
  • improving the aesthetic and taste qualities of tomatoes
  • improving the preservation of fruits
  • reducing the level of nitrates accumulated in fruits, harvesting organic tomatoes.

The most time consuming component of greenhouse tomato care is watering. Installing drip systems helps to optimize the humidification process and avoid many risks. But with manual watering, you need to be very careful:

  • do not soak the leaves
  • control the quality and temperature of water (22..25 °)
  • start regular watering only after the plants have adapted to the greenhouse, their growth resumed (about 8-12 days after planting)
  • carry out procedures in the morning and not too often, with an interval of 4-6 days
  • use 4-5 liters of water per 1 m² of soil before flowering and 10-13 liters after its beginning
  • finish each watering by gently loosening the soil (it can be replaced with mulching).

Planting needs to be ventilated more often, especially after watering, maintaining a stable temperature from 18 to 26 ° during the day, depending on the weather, and not lower than 15 ... 16 ° at night.

Otherwise, caring for tomatoes in a greenhouse boils down to:

  • a garter, which is carried out on linear or frame trellises (for low varieties - pegs)
  • pinching - removing the leaves of the lateral shoots-stepsons growing from the axils
  • manual pollination (use shaking brushes, using a fan or brush, followed by an increase in air humidity - by watering or spraying)
  • the formation of plants in one stem (for some large hybrids - in two stems)
  • removal of the lower leaves after planting and the beginning of fruit ripening
  • daily harvest.
After harvesting, greenhouses and soil should also be treated with Ecomik Urozhainy. © cabinorganic
