Gardeners, dachas and farmers engaged in the cultivation of strawberries on a professional basis on an industrial scale, say the advantages of strawberry universal varieties Marshal. They see them in high product qualities, attractive appearance, good adaptation to the Russian conditions and the possibility of year-round cultivation in the closed soil.
History of removal of varieties
By his appearance, Marshal’s grade (Synonym Name Marshall) is obliged to the tireless work of the breeder from the US Marshall Wella. In front of him there was a difficult task – to remove the variety capable of developing and fruiting in adverse conditions. So, at the end of the XIX century, the scientist managed to get the required result and subsequently register the variety. For many years, this strawberry became popular not only on the American continent, but also mastered almost all countries where it is possible to grow.
Description of varieties
Marshal possesses a loose, but massive bush with a strong structure and powerful rhizomes. The plant has thickened upright stalks covered with large light green leaves with a corrugated sheet plate. The variety is characterized by thick blossoms, abundantly covered during flowering with white flowers. Extensive vegetative mass is well covered by a berry, protecting it from direct sunlight and birds. Flowerines as fruits ripen flexions.
The grade is guaranteed to give a high harvest with a good agrotechnology in the first year, however, needs regular landing updates. The plant is easily adapted in the new conditions, young landings are perfect. Marshal tolerates temperature jumps without any problems, has long fruiting, increased radiation and the development of a large number of outlets. It forces the gardeners to resort to frequent ass. The variety is pretty easily tolerates a dry period.
Timing of ripening
Marshal refer to medium-grained varieties, the period of fruiting falls on the first decade of June, but under ideal conditions it makes harvest for a long time.
The versatility of the grade allows its cultivation in any regions, even in the risky agriculture zone.
Strawberry Marshal refers to high-yielding varieties and is able to give up to 1 kilogram of berries with bush. So that the crops remain stable, the bushes must be planted annually on a new place, but at the same time they grow beautifully in one place until 10-12 years.
Berries and their taste
Marshal variety is characterized by very large bright red berries of a wedge-shaped, sometimes comb shape, whose weight reaches 100 grams. Juicy light red pulp, taste sweet with sourness, nice strawberry fragrance. Surface seeds Marshal painted in light yellow tones. Ripe fetus has a shiny glossy skin. The grade drought-resistant, but also during the protracted rains, it does not gain wateriness, keeping the fruits with the same medium-plot and sweet. Berry, as a rule, homogeneous in shape and size, has high marketability, although it is distinguished by bad transportability. Because of this, the variety is not too common in farms sending a harvest for long distances.
Features of cultivation
According to experts, the universal unpretentious marshal does not have special requests in agrotechnology, withdrawing it beyond traditional. Caring for him is no different from the care of the rest of the varieties, it perfectly responds to generally accepted techniques in landing, caring, prevention and protection.
Choosing a place and soil preparation
For this variety it is best suited for clay soil, raw and without drainage. The owner needs to find a plot with good illumination, southern or southeast direction. Working out the land, preparing the landing ridges, it is necessary to lift them over the ground level, arranging comprehensive heating not only the green part of the plant, but also the root system. For the site it will take advance treatment – the introduction of the organics together with sand and wood ash with autumn. During the rescock, you need to try to remove as much roots as possible so that the plot is clean – the strawberry does not like the neighborhood with weeds. Preceding Siderats are dripping.
Self-polls plant, since it blooms richly with hay flowers.
Despite the fact that the plant can grow on depleted heavy soils, feeding the crop and health significantly increase its crop. In this capacity, it is customary to use nitrogen, potash, phosphoric, complex specialized fertilizers, as well as organics – humus, compost, bird litter, korovyat (infusion of cow’s manure). Good return is obtained by applying flavors – her richest composition of trace elements and other beneficial substances not only feeds strawberries, but also improves soil indicators. Fertilizers make early spring before flowering and fall.
All about fertilizers for strawberries
One of the important techniques in the care of strawberries is the feeding. Regular fertilization makes it guarantees a rich crop. There are several different ways to feed strawberries and each of them is intended for a certain period of plant development. During flowering, fruiting and after it, the feeding must be different.
Frost resistance and need for shelter
Marshal is distinguished by decent frost resistance, but in the regions with a temperate climate it must be stolen. For the winter, the variety needs trimming – bushes are cleaned almost under the root, leaving small hemps with a height of no more than three centimeters. Subsequently, floral kidneys are formed on them, so where winter is characterized by strong frosts, such hemp is needed additional protection by agricultural, spunbond. In addition, landing can be mulched.
Diseases and pests
The grade is not distinguished by sophistication in diseases to diseases. Marshal may be affected by traditional berries for this type of disease:
Gray rot, fusariosis, mildew;
nematodes, weevil, whiteflake, strawberry tick.
For the treatment and prevention of fungal diseases, gardeners are used by Fungicides – “Alin”, “Barotophit”, “Phytosporin” and others. Insecticides are needed to combat insect pest attacks – “Aktara”, “Decis”, “Calypso”, “Akarin” and other.
Fighting diseases and pests
Strawberry is often subject to a variety of dangerous diseases that can seriously undermine its condition. Among the most common – malievable dew, gray rot, bright spot, anthracnose and verticillosis. Before buying a variety, it is necessary to ask him resistant to disease.

Marshal perfectly breeds the division of the bush. In this way, it is seated by new places in early spring. Over the summer, young landings have time to build a powerful root system, which ensures trouble-free wintering. In addition, the enhanced extension of the mustache and no less abundant appearance of sockets all season provides owners with new planting material. Outlets searched as they are formation and rooting. Good harvest with them get the next year.
