Hello. The question and the truth are urgent on the eve of harvesting. Although, in some places only recently seedlings were dropped. In general, the application of fertilizer azofoski for a tomato is really one of the best solutions. The main thing here is to do everything right - then you will receive an abundant harvest of tasty, useful tomatoes. Otherwise, it is possible to get serious poisoning. In general, the official name is nitroammophoska.
Fertilizer is chemical, so it is very important to follow certain instructions. Now I'll tell you briefly.
On what soil should I apply?
One of the main advantages of isofosco is the possibility of using practically any type of soil:
- The Swamp.
Therefore, to worry about this, you obviously should not - boldly bring in the sandy soil. Moreover, it has good diffusion, since it has a low density. Fertilizer will quickly disperse, will not accumulate in one place and positively affect the yield.
When is it better to make?
Like any chemical fertilizer, it is better to make azofosca in warm soil. This contributes to the fastest dissolution. If you bring it in April or October, then the soil will not have time to warm up (or vice versa, it will already cool down), as a result of which fertilizer will go badly, remaining in one place. This can already cause serious damage to your garden and even the health of people eating tomatoes.
It is best to bring them in May, shortly before the tomatoes are planted in the ground, or in September, just after the last harvest is harvested. Warm, soft soil has good diffusion - with regular watering or rains, the fertilizer will quickly disperse and be digested by the soil. As a result, tomato bushes will receive a good fertilizing and will allow to get a rich harvest.
True, for the guarantee should be reinsured. Do not forget to alternate chemical fertilizers and organic. For example, if you have two years in a row fertilizing the land in one plot of Azot, the next year, use a green fertilizer or a vermicompost. Manure is undesirable - it contains nitrates.
It is difficult to say exactly how much Azorfos should be brought into the ground. After all, there are different types of this fertilizer, differing in the proportion of potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen. Therefore, it is best to simply follow the instructions - it is always indicated on the packaging.
Some gardeners, hoping to quickly get a rich harvest, decide to disregard the rules, introducing significantly more fertilizers. And this is an extremely serious mistake that can not only kill tomato bushes, but also cause health problems. After all, with the standard amount of fertilizers, nitrites remain in the roots, strengthening them and providing the best yield. If the portion has been significantly exceeded, part of the fertilizer, absorbed with other nutrients and water, will inevitably fall into stems, leaves and fruits. It is not always possible to determine the presence of nitrites in fruits without special expertise. So, it's better to just completely follow the recommendations on the label, than to risk your health and the health of your loved ones.
The main thing is to follow the correct use and you can not be afraid of chemical fertilizers - on many weak and tired soils they are the only way to get a rich harvest.
