Watering is the most important in plant growing technology. It may seem that there are no difficulties in it. However, in practice there is a certain watering mode for each plant. Strawberry is also not an exception to this rule. Rational irrigation should be carried out with caution, with harsh compliance with the main standards.
Is it possible to water and why?
The first irrigations of strawberry bushes in dry time perform early spring, when in some cases the temperature of the atmosphere is not more than 15 ° C. Water of such a temperature is perceived as cold. For irrigation, even in a coolness, it is preferable to apply indoor temperature water or at a thin end from 18-20 ° C.
In the summer period (in hot weather in particular) should not be done by contrast. For this reason, watering is performed early in the morning when the tip of the temperature of the atmosphere and water is not more than 5 ° C. Cold water from a well, from a well or spring water according to its structure is considered the most optimal for irrigation of strawberry beds, but it can lead to the rotation of the root system and the occurrence of fungal diseases.
In this regard, before watering, to gain this water in the tank and heat in the sun.
So use cold water or not?
When the choice between plants’ fading and not too strong stress, a fundamental response in such a situation will be affirmative, all serious gardeners will prefer stress. Contrary to known opinion, a special threat to strawberries irrigating cold water does not represent, as it blooms early. In nature, the plant is often under the influence of cold rains.
Attention! Only irrigation is recommended not under the root system itself, but with a uniform distribution in the garden, which makes it possible to create conditions of the same concentration of water everywhere.
Studiencies of watering
The possibility of cold watering in an unfavorable situation does not mean that he will always “save” gardeners. This technique can be resorted only when the plant reasonably has the need for a good fluid portion. By itself, the lack of time with the rationale for cold irrigation can not be. In any way, even a very small, summer cottage, some other works are always performed.
Therefore, it is advisable to do so:
- dial water into the container;
- Meanwhile, you can work on the beds and in the garden;
- wait until the water becomes warm;
- Carefully and according to recommendations for a certain variety to pour a berry.
The greater the container in which water is defended, the better. The heat capacity of the medium and materials makes it possible to maintain the necessary temperature more. The use of barrel does not mean that it will be necessary to walk with buckets. Since you can select a little time and embed a crane into the tank, which is already stretched hose. Strawberry in the ladded time gardens \ Ogorodstan for such thorough and serious care.
Any watering beds with strawberries need to be carried out carefully. It is categorically unacceptable to getting water to the bushes, and especially on flowers. The greatest danger of using cold water appears for the root system. In the process of forming and ripening fruit, strawberries are soaked in such a way that the berries are preserved dry, otherwise they will rot. The most favorable for strawberry solutions is sprinkling or drip watering.
At the end of the cold, strawberry irrigation can be carried out no earlier than the last April days or the beginning of May. Be sure to wait when they hide and revive the bushes. At this time, the use of cold water is unacceptable, no matter how big. Be sure to wait for room temperature.
Besides It is necessary to ensure that the weighing plants do not block the passage of water.
All-intensive watering instead of positive results often brings harm – the harvest is done watery.
For strawberries Cold is water, 15 degree temperatures and below. From sprinkling, including when applied heated as water relies, in the flowering phase refrain. The hose irrigation is contraindicated: small inconsity, and in a few seconds the root system will be blurred. For irrigation under the ferrous greenhouse film, drip technology is recommended. In the first year of formation, irrigation should be fairly intensively so that the plants should be rooted.
Recommended time for irrigation – Morning or evening hours. Before watering it is necessary to check, to what extent water heated. If possible, in the process of flowering plants, it should be abandoned from its irrigation. If it is too necessary to pour strawberries, you need to watch the pestles to lose pollen.
The use of cold water not only makes a weaker root system, but also undermines its performance. The productivity of strawberries is reduced, it becomes predisposed to aggression ammonifying microorganisms. Consumer quality of collected berries is also reduced, so highly professional agronomists under no circumstances do not practice such an approach.
