Top dressing for the harvest of apples: nitrogen and potash, root and foliar
APPLE TREE: GOOD FEEDING - RICH HARVEST
The apple is the most beloved and frequent fruit on our tables all year round, especially if this apple is self-grown. In summer, we enjoy fresh fruits with pleasure, and in winter, fragrant jams and compotes.
Apple trees grow in every garden plot. With proper care, you can harvest a bountiful harvest of apples. Whitewashing, pruning, watering, fertilizing and pest and disease control are important.
We cut the apple trees, shortening the shoots by two-thirds of the length, and remove some of the branches to reduce the crown volume by half from the original. With such pruning, the return of apples by a tree is maximum.
We water apple trees four times a season, watering is necessary for them. The first watering is carried out before bud break.
The second - a week after the end of flowering. We water the third time 2 weeks before harvesting the fruits, this eliminates their cracking. And the final watering - at the end of September, it serves as a preventive measure for the wood to dry out in a dry autumn and the apple tree to freeze in winter. Consumption - 2-3 buckets per fruit tree.
For root fertilizers of apple trees and other fruit trees, on the advice of experienced gardeners, we use this method. Along the circumference of the crown, three wells with a diameter of 10 cm and a depth of 0,5 m were made with a garden drill. They filled them with broken bricks and now, when watering, fertilizers evenly fall immediately to the root system.
In the spring, we carry out health-improving top dressing with a saturated solution of potassium permanganate (consumption - 10 liters per tree). In the summer we feed with azofoska -1 tbsp. spoon per 10 liters of water, consumption - 20 liters per tree. After harvesting, we carry out the final feeding with complete fertilizer for fruit trees in granules (preparation of the solution and consumption - according to the instructions).
Foliar top dressing is also important for the apple tree, it is easy to carry it out using a sprayer with a long tube. The first time we feed apple trees during flowering with a solution of boron (1,5 g per bucket of water), this top dressing helps to significantly increase the number of ovaries. We spray the trees in the afternoon.
We carry out the following top dressing during the period of fruit growth once every two weeks, alternating nitrogen, iodine and ash. Nitrogen top dressing - 2 tbsp. spoons of urea in a bucket of water. Iodine - 10 ml of iodine per bucket of water. Potash -1 glass of wood ash pour 2 liters of hot water, then filter and dilute to a volume of 10 liters (consumption - 5 liters per tree).
To prevent diseases and pests, we whiten apple trees in the spring, put trapping belts on their trunks, spray with Bordeaux liquid (according to instructions), and constantly collect fallen fruits.
