Potato subspecies

Different varieties of potatoes are suitable not for all regions of Russia... Although most are acclimatized to the temperate zone, there are varieties that are most suitable for central Russia and Siberia.

Also, potatoes differ in the shade of pulp, taste, ripening time. Based on this, they can be classified as follows:

What kind of potatoes to choose for cooking, mashed potatoes and frying

It depends on the purpose of use. For cooking, varieties with low starchiness are recommended, for cooking in skins and for mashed potatoes - on the contrary, the potatoes should be starchy, then they will be crumbly. In the first case, you can choose varieties with pink and red skin - Symphony, Romano, Zhukovsky early, in the second - varieties with light skin and the middle - Lasunak, Vestnik, Adretta, Snow White.

For frying, varieties with a dark skin and yellowish flesh, with a slight starchiness, are suitable. These are Nevsky, Luck, Concord, Ramenskiy, Effect. Universal varieties - Sotka, Idaho, Lyubimets, Loshinsky.

Preparatory work on the site

An early crop requires nutritious soil and a well-lit, open area. The best predecessors are tomatoes, legumes, cucumbers, potatoes.

In the fall, they dig the soil to a depth of about 30 cm. Along the way, humus or manure is introduced. 4 kg is enough for 1 m2. As for mineral dressings, an average of superphosphate is required - 40 grams and potassium chloride - 20 grams for the same amount of land.

At the onset of spring, superphosphate, potassium chloride and urea (15 g) are again added. Superphosphate is the same as with autumn feeding, and potassium is slightly less - 15 grams. Using a rake, they are brought into the upper soil layer.

If digging was not carried out in the fall, then fertilizing must be added before planting seedlings. Fertilizers are important for this crop for the proper development of the heads of cabbage.

For example, when there is a deficiency of nitrogen, the leaves become lethargic, turn pale. In some cases, with a strong lack of this element, they may turn red or blue.

If there is a lack of potassium, the foliage falls off. A small amount of phosphorus slows down growth.

Growing cabbage through seedlings

To get ripe fruits earlier, use the seedling method. This helps to protect young plants from insect pests and diseases.

Seed preparation for sowing

Seeds are purchased already processed and disinfected, therefore, these procedures do not need to be carried out additionally. When using your own material, it is recommended to process it as a prophylaxis. To do this, heat the water to + 50 degrees and place the seeds for 20 minutes.

After the planting material is placed in cool water and then allowed to dry. Those seeds that have surfaced are removed, since they will not germinate.

Preparing cabbage seeds for planting seedlings - video

There are 2 ways to grow through seedlings:

  • potty
  • potless.

Picks are possible in both variants.

Pot method of growing cabbage seedlings

Recently it has become widespread. Such seedlings adapt well to a new place of growth due to the fact that the roots are not exposed to unnecessary influences. In the absence of a diving stage, sowing cabbage seeds is carried out from the end of winter to March 15.

The soil is prepared in advance, as well as during the preparatory work on the site. Mix humus with soil in equal proportions. Add ammonium and potassium nitrate, superphosphate (10, 15, 30 g, respectively).

At this stage, with nutrient soil, you can not make additional fertilizing. An excellent soil option for seedlings is peat with sawdust and sand.

In each planting container, sow from 2 to 3 seeds to a depth of no more than 2 cm. Water well immediately. Take warm water. To speed up the germination process, cover the planting with a film. Temperature +25 degrees. When shoots appear, they are reduced to + 8 - 10.

After the first leaves appear on cabbage seedlings, the temperature is again raised to + 17 in the daytime and up to + 10 at night... The last point is very important. This will harden the plants. For planting in open ground, take strong cabbage seedlings with the number of leaves from 4 to 5.

Potless way

This method is good for growing large numbers of seedlings. For example, for sale. Also applicable when there is not enough space. They take containers, boxes and lay a layer of moist earth up to 6 cm thick on the bottom. Grooves are made, with a distance of 4 cm from each other.

If you have a pair of green sheets, make a pick in different containers 6 x 6... Alternatively, the original plantings are thinned out. When transplanting seedlings grown in this way, no more than 10% of all roots are preserved.

There is also a potless method with the preservation of the root system in full... The containers here are represented by moist earth, from which "pots" are formed. For better shape retention, a mullein is introduced into the ground. For a bucket of earth no more than ½ liter. The resulting composition is placed in a layer of 6 cm in boxes, tamped and thinned, making squares about 6 x 6 cm.

Seedless method of growing early cabbage

Early cabbage can be grown without seedlings. In this case, the ripening of the crop will take a little longer. You should not worry about a possible cold snap, because the culture normally tolerates small frosts. However, it is necessary to compare the ripening time of the selected variety with the climate. For example, for the middle zone of the country, landing in early May is suitable.

For this method, shelters are made of film and just plastic bottles. Seeds are placed in moist soil at a depth of 3 cm and covered. After 30 days, the first leaves will appear. The covering material is removed.

Planting early cabbage in open ground

The best option for planting is square. In this case, the distance between the rows is equal to the landing step. Some gardeners place the vegetable in the same row aisle. Its width is about 65 cm. Between the bushes, they leave from 30 to 35 cm.

Cabbage seedlings are examined for damage, diseases and only after that they are planted. After a thorough examination of the material, holes are formed up to 12 cm deep. A handful of humus and 2 tbsp. Are placed in each. l. ash. You can add a mineral compound feed instead.

Then watering is carried out. At least 2 liters of water per hole. Before planting, the roots of potted cabbage seedlings are dipped in a solution of mullein and clay before planting. The neck of the root is buried 4 cm into the ground to the first leaf. The kidneys are not covered with soil. Spill again and sprinkle with a thin layer of dry soil.

Rooting will take place on the 14th day. Often additional film cover is required for this period, since plants have low frost resistance.

The best varieties of potatoes of domestic and foreign selection

Of course, Russia has enough of its own varieties, but many Dutch and German varieties have gained particular popularity. It is hard not to note that for many years many gardeners have been successfully cultivating the famous Ukrainian and, of course, Belarusian varieties of potatoes.

Note! Information about the country of origin of the variety is given in its description (at the end), here, just for convenience, the names of the varieties are grouped by origin (alphabetically), as well as the names of other less popular varieties.

Important! You should not "get hung up" on one favorite variety, it is better to grow several on the site at once, because the yield of the variety can fluctuate from season to season. Moreover, each variety, as a rule, is especially good for certain purposes: some are for making mashed potatoes, others for frying, third varieties are suitable for early digging for the sake of young potatoes, the fourth are for long winter storage and have a fairly universal application.

List of the most productive potato varieties

To get a good harvest, you need to choose the right potato variety. At the same time, it is important to take into account the ripening time, resistance to diseases, pest infestation and mechanical damage. It is also important how crops tolerate unfavorable weather factors, in particular, drought, high humidity and freezing temperatures. Varieties that thrive in southern regions may not be suitable for gardeners in northern latitudes at all. Much also depends on the purpose of a particular variety.
