My method of growing garlic and tips on increasing yields
To obtain good and stable harvests of this crop, not only timely feeding is needed, but also the ability to "print a step".
I noticed that although there is not a garden where no garlic was grown, but its yields, the majority of visitors can not boast. And everything from the fact that they do not know agricultural technology well enough.
Well, for example, truck farmers do not take into account the fact that the repeated use of denticles of old heads leads to the degeneration of garlic. A wrong crop rotation leads to damage by pests and diseases.
I have developed my own technique, which makes it possible to receive annually a high yield of heads with a mass of 100 g and more.
Growing sort Gribovsky anniversary - winter, winter-hardy, darting, very sharp, the number of denticles in the heads is from 8 to 11 pieces. I try to plant it after cucumbers, introducing before it rotted manure or compost (per bucket per 1 sq. M) and potassium sulfate (1 cup per 1 sq. M), digging the bed onto the bayonet of a shovel and then leveling its surface with a rake.

I pay special attention to planting dates. For example, the best time for the Midland is September 10-15. If shoots appear during prolonged, frost-free and rainy autumn, then this will not bring harm, because a well-developed root system will help plants cope with stress when the cold comes.
I grow garlic in a three-year culture. In June, he throws out the arrows, which break everything except 3-4. On them I give the opportunity to mature bulbochkami, which I use for growing a one-tooth up to 1,5 cm. Then I also plant them and get good four-tooth heads.
The best denticles of them are again planted and I get excellent eight-toothed heads, which I mentioned at the beginning of the letter.
Using air bulbs for landing, I keep the purity of the variety, annually revitalizing it and protecting it from degeneration.
For the prevention of stem nematode, I soak all planting material in a solution of potassium permanganate. Across the garden with the help of a rail, I make grooves at a distance of 20-22 cm from each other, water them, bring in superphosphate (1 tsp per row) and plant the cloves with the bottom down (planting step - 10-12 cm). Then the bed is mulched with humus.
In the spring, immediately after the snow falls, shoots appear, which, as a rule, are yellow, which is a sign of nitrogen starvation. For top dressing I use a solution of urea (1 glass on 50 L of water) and the next day I loosen the soil in the aisles. During the throwing out of the hands I feed the garlic also with Azofa (30 g per 50 L of water).
Cleaning I spend, when the leaves of garlic turn yellow, and the left arrows straighten. In dry weather, I dig up plants, pull them out, shake them off the soil, lay them on the bed to dry, and then cut off the tops and roots.
When the weather is rainy, I spend the pruning much later: first I bind the plants into bundles according to 10 pieces, hang it in the shed for drying, and only after I take the knife. I store garlic in cardboard boxes in the corridor, where the temperature in winter does not fall below 3 ° of heat.
