Potatoes under straw growing

Potatoes under the strawThe plot of land on which it is planned to grow potatoes under the straw, it is necessary to loosen up. To do this, use the Fokine plane. To a depth of up to 10 cm it is necessary to loosen a strip about 15 in width. The formation of the trench to the depth of the loosened soil is carried out with the same flat-cutter. Further in it the tubers are laid out. After that, with the help of a flat-topped plane, the ground is raked. You need to do this so that a mound is formed. After this planting, it is necessary to cover the straw with a height of 10 cm.

A new layer of height up to 20 cm is added when the plants above the straw rise to the height of 5-10 cm. Note that straw packing should not be done from above, but between plants. Straw must be completely closed. But they should not be crushed. This ends the care. Of course, one should not forget about processing potato plantations against the Colorado beetle. When using this method of planting weeds are absent, since light is a necessary condition for their growth is absent.

The potato grows under the straw, and it closes the whole world. Such an operation as hilling is also not necessary. Watering is also not required, since moisture is well preserved under the straw. In hot days overheating of the soil does not occur, which favors the good growth of potatoes. There is always an opportunity to see how the tubers develop. Raising the straw, you can see all this. The digging of early potatoes is not necessary. It is necessary to remove straw, select large tubers, and smaller ones should continue to grow.

A variation of the straw method can be used for medium-ripening varieties. The main difference is that when the plant reaches a height of 15-17 cm, it is necessary to soil the passages from the passages. Straw remains in place. Over it moist soil is poured. As a result, rather high ridges and row spacing are obtained. Straw is used to fill the rows between layers up to 40 cm.

When using the method of growing potatoes under straw, errors are possible, which will be discussed later.

- The tubers must be planted in moist soil. If planting is done in a dry, and then sprinkled with a thick layer of straw, then the risk is high that in the fall you will not get any harvest. A thick layer of straw small rain is unlikely to get wet.

- After the landing, you do not need to immediately lay a thick layer of straw. If so, the emergence of seedlings will be delayed somewhat. There are several reasons for this. One of them: warming up the earth under a thick layer of straw will take a long time. In addition, a thick layer of straw will create complexity for the shoots to reach the surface. In the event that you have laid the caked straw, the sprouts may not appear.

- It is inappropriate to use a thick layer of straw. Straw quickly sits down. If you laid a layer of straw with a thickness of 10 cm, then after 2 weeks you will only have 5 cm. This layer can not provide protection for potato plantings from drying out. Protection against weeds, too. It will be dry all the time, which means that its decomposition will not occur.

Recently, a new variant of growing potatoes under a straw was tried. Trenches are filled with straw from autumn. Together with the straw, leaves are brought in from the forest. In the spring, the tuber is poured into the organics and the potato is placed on the bottom of the trench. This way of planting is quite simple. In the future, all that is required is to make organic, as it gradually decomposes. You do not need to dig or water, and you do not need to spend hilling. Only straw is required three times less. In autumn, you can get the same harvest as when using one straw. A feature of the above method is that straw is required an order of magnitude smaller, about three times. This variant of planting potatoes will go to lazy people, who want to facilitate themselves the task of planting potatoes.

You can constantly conduct experiments with straw technology, supplementing it, creating something of your own. This will allow to obtain a technology, the pursuit of which will ensure high yields with minimal costs.
