MY FEEDBACK ON THE APPLICATION OF MUSTARD CAUSES
A few years ago, we bought two more from our neighbor to our four hundredths. The land on the new plot was more fertile compared to ours. There were no weeds - apparently, organic matter was introduced in large quantities. The neighbor grew mainly potatoes and cabbage, in the spring dill came in abundance.
In the fall of these two acres, we gathered a great harvest of beets, carrots, cabbage, zucchini and greens.
Particularly pleased with the large, high-quality onions: golden, red and white. They laid it out in the sun to dry - and he immediately began to rot. Unfortunately, they didn’t bring anything home, everything went into a compost pit ...
It was then that we were advised in the seed shop to purchase mustard cake. Since then, there are no problems with onions: it is perfectly preserved until the new harvest.
And only during planting we add a little mustard cake to the grooves in the garden, and no more experiments during the summer. Even in the last rainy summer, a bow like this has grown (photo 1).
It could have been even bigger if, again, not the ubiquitous dill, which filled the garden and was not all torn out. But most importantly, onions are well kept.
Usually part of the bag of cake is left over - in the fall we make it when planting garlic. And also in the future, except for watering and weeding, we do nothing more. Garlic is stored all winter.
A new discovery was the use of oil cake when planting gladioli. In the summer, flowers grew as usual, but what a surprise it was when we dug up the bulbs! They were absolutely clean and healthy (2 photo). And although not yet time, I opened three bulbs to demonstrate to readers. This is despite the fact that in the spring I was presented with several sick specimens of a rare variety. The hostess of the gift they cut and processed green paint.
Oilcake - pure organic matter, contains proteins, fiber and minerals. It repels wireworms, nematodes, and larvae of onion and carrot flies. 10 kg of meal for nutrition are comparable to a cubic meter of mullein!
It should not be used on acidic soils, as it enhances acidity, and it is impossible to fertilize the bed with cruciferous, as mustard belongs to this family, i.e. cake is useless for cabbage. This year we will try on strawberries.
More: when buying you need to make sure that the cake was free-flowing, homogeneous. Sometimes it cracks forming hard plates. This cake is inconvenient to use.
