Planting potatoes

Such Belarusian potato varieties as the Lasunok variety can be quite successfully cultivated in most regions of Russia, including the Northwest regions. In the implementation of the classical technology of planting potatoes, the soil should simply be dug in the autumn period and fertility should be improved with mineral and organic fertilizers.

In order to prevent storm erosion of the soil in some regions of our country, potato plantings should be placed on the most even areas without using slopes of more than 3 ° for cultivation. On heavy clay and loamy soils, with increased soil moisture it is recommended to use ridge cultivation technology. In the arid zone and also if there is sandy loam on the plot, it is preferable to use a smooth planting of potatoes.

Potato of the "Lasunok" variety shows a very high responsiveness to the introduction of high-quality manure, which is the main source of carbon dioxide, as well as macro- and microelements most significant for this vegetable crop. Manure significantly improves the quality of the soil, making it more loose.

Such an event is especially relevant for sites represented by heavy loam. The introduction of manure and other organics under the potato is carried out exclusively in the autumn period.

Care Features

Despite the unpretentiousness, only timely and proper care for potato varieties "Lasunok" contributes to a good yield of this vegetable crop. A set of basic care measures should be based on climatic conditions, soil fertility, and take into account the phase of development of a vegetable crop:

  • If there is a strong contamination of the soil with weeds, then weeding and loosening of the row-spacing should be carried out before the emergence of potato seedlings, but very carefully so as not to damage the sprouts of the vegetable crop.
  • After the potato seedlings have reached a height of 10-12 cm, it is important to carry out the mandatory first hilling, stimulating the appearance of additional stolons on the plant; the optimal indicators of the depth of earthing up potato seedlings on light soils are 13-15 cm, and the earthing up on heavy soil should reach 10-12 cm.

  • In the first days after planting, it is not recommended to irrigate potatoes, since during this period the root system of the plant is formed, and then the main irrigation for the entire growing period should be about three.
  • After the emergence of potato seedlings, it is recommended to fertilize the vegetable culture with good water-soluble nitrogen and potassium fertilizers; it is allowed to feed with mullein or any other nitrogen-containing fertilizer, as well as urea at the first stage of development, and then use foliar highly effective top dressing.

Typically, potato harvesting begins in late August and can be carried out until mid-September. Harvesting on a personal plot can be carried out both manually and with a walk-behind tractor.
