Tips and agricultural techniques
Reviews of Hugo tomatoes from domestic farmers are only the most positive. They can be grown both outdoors and in a greenhouse. A prerequisite for obtaining a good harvest is correct agricultural technology.
- To obtain an early harvest "Hugo" sowing seeds for seedlings are made at the end of February. The seeds of the hybrid have already been treated with antifungal drugs, so they do not need to be kept in potassium permanganate for pickling. You can soak the seed in a solution of potassium permanganate or in aloe juice for 10-12 hours.
- The correct selection of soil for seedlings is a guarantee of friendly healthy seedlings and good development of seedlings. It is better to use ready-made soil mixtures from the store, but you can also prepare the soil yourself. To do this, on a bucket of sifted humus, you need to take 2 kg of peat and sand and one kilogram of ash flour. Mix everything thoroughly. It is imperative to warm up the soil in the room where the seeds will be sown for about 3-5 days.
- Seedlings will appear 3-4 days after sowing, they must be carefully watered with warm water with potassium permanganate (weak solution). Better to water with a flower spray bottle. Watering is carried out as the topsoil dries up.
- Compliance with the irrigation and lighting regime is also important, as well as maintaining optimal humidity (the air humidity in the room is not higher than 65%, the temperature is 22 degrees, and the light is 18 hours a day).
- While real leaves appear, seedlings can be sprinkled with soil mixture.
- Seedlings should be dived after the appearance of 2-4 true leaves at a distance of 10x10 for better development of the stem and root system of the seedling.
- The picking grows for about a month to 25-30 centimeters, it is this seedling height that is optimal for planting on the beds.
- A week before planting seedlings, it is treated with a solution of Bordeaux liquid.
- After planting on the beds, the plants should be regularly watered, ventilated (in the greenhouse) and fertilized with nitrogen and potassium fertilizers according to the scheme. The first top dressing is nitrogen, then potash. Fertilizers should be carried out in conjunction with watering and, at first, it is better with liquid fertilizing.
- It should be remembered that tomatoes do not need to be sprayed during ovary and fruit ripening.
