But it is worth considering - it is quite depleting the soil. Therefore, experts generally do not recommend growing this berry in one place for more than five years. Yields will fall, and other crops grown in this area will produce not too abundant fruits. But special feeding can partially solve this problem. The main thing is to know exactly how to use the Baikal EM-1 fertilizer. Application for strawberries should be correct and carefully verified.
How to prepare a working solution
In general, “Baikal EM-1” is not a fertilizer in the usual sense of the word. In fact, it is a set of microorganisms that can restore soil fertility, ensure the production of necessary elements and increase the yield. Therefore, proper preparation of the working solution is especially important.
For this you need to take warm( about + 20. .. + 25 degrees Celsius), non-chlorinated water. It adds any easily soluble sweetness - old jam, honey, sugar. The result is a nutrient medium, ideal for the reproduction of microorganisms. The optimal concentration of "Baikal EM-1" for watering strawberries is 1: 1000.
Therefore, 2 teaspoons of concentrate is enough for 10 liters of nutrient medium.10-12 hours after the concentrate is applied, the bacteria multiply enough to allow the solution to be used.

Since “Baikal EM-1” is not an ordinary fertilizer, it can be applied several times per season. The first time it is recommended to do in late spring. Both strawberry bushes and the ground that you are going to plant with berries are watered. Watering the site over the summer is recommended 3-5 times. It is advisable to do this after rain or abundant watering - in dry soil, the bacteria will quickly die.
