Blooming culture is short-lived, but massively. The inflorescence has many compactly folded colors. Corolla of a red-violet flower on the tips has white stripes. The fruit after the flower is absent.

It is impossible to accurately determine the color of the tuber culture, it can be red or have a pink tinge. There are few eyes on tubers, they are usually small. When the potato is cut, the flesh does not darken, it has a white color.

The maximum yield of the variety is 38 tons per hectare, the weight of the tuber reaches 170 grams, starch up to 15%. Zhukovsky early is well kept, its indicators are 92-96%. In addition, tubers are not afraid of mechanical damage, having an output of 90% of quality potatoes. It should be noted that this variety is resistant to nematodes and cancers.

Cultivation of potato variety Zhukovsky early

To plant a potato tuber Zhukovsky early are prepared as follows. Tubers stack in boxes in several rows, bags or germinate in bulk in a greenhouse or under a film, the temperature should be from 4 ° to 20 °. It should be remembered that the embankment should not be high, and the lighting should be scattered. If sprouting is carried out in a roomy environment, then the tubers need to be moistened and turned over after a while. Scattered light is obtained by covering the seed with paper or a white cloth, you can use a newspaper for this purpose. Together with moistening, tubers should be disinfected using potassium permanganate with an interval of 6 days.

A good indicator of germination is the presence of germs in tubers up to 1 centimeter. If the seed material is covered with a film, or is in a greenhouse, then you should not be afraid of sudden temperature changes. Studies show that the sprouted material forms more stems and yields a greater yield, but with this method it is not necessary to overcool the potatoes, bringing it to + 2 degree, which affects the germination capacity.

The variety in question is an early one, but in order to obtain a crop before the standard period, tubers are placed in peat or wet sawdust for a week, which contributes to the rapid development of the root system. However, this method is used only in cases of manual landing.

To accelerate the development of plants, the areas are covered with agrofiber, especially when planting in early periods. These shelters protect plants from possible frosts, and also increase the temperature of the soil. Take shelter when the temperature rises, when the threat of frost passes, or when it is necessary to remove the weeds.

Tubers for early planting should be used with a mass of 80-100 grams. Planting material must be of high quality without obvious signs of disease.
