Protection against Phytophthora
Late blight develops most often in the greenhouse. Because that is where the plant is lacking air. Some days it can destroy a crop of tomatoes. Gardeners often use "fitosporin" as protection and prevention of the disease. The medication was guaranteed success, use it at the stage of seed treatment. Just steep in it the seeds of a tomato for 1-2 hours.
Next, at seedling stage occasionally watering the tomatoes with a solution of "Fitosporin". So the plants are immune. However, after transplanting, do not forget the bacterial preparation: spray them with bushes. At the first sign of Phytophthora make spraying regular.
Parts of plants that are already affected, be sure to delete. A solution prepare in the following recipe: take 200 grams of the drug and dissolve in 400 ml of water. Put the solution in a cool place. As soon as you need to spray the plant, take one tablespoon of the solution in a bucket of water. Now you can go directly to spraying.
Recipe for soaking the roots and spraying
Before planting in the soil dip the roots of seedlings of tomato for 1-2 hours in a solution of "Fitosporin". To do this, prepare a solution of 1 tablespoon of the drug per 10 liters of water. If you do not have time to soak the roots before planting, then water the seedlings 3 days after planting in open ground. To do this, use 1 Cup or 200 ml per plant. Preventive spraying during the growing season. To do this, dissolve 10 ml in 10 liters of water. After the first spraying must undergo 15 days and then can hold the second treatment.
How this drug works?
"Fitosporin" live bacterium-predator Bacillis subtilis. She is able to work in the soil from -20 to +40, clearing the space from various pathogenic organisms. To ensure that the bacteria are not killed, use the solution immediately after dilution. Some gardeners recommend watering the soil "Phytosporin" just before planting and then several times over the summer. Do this kind of watering two days before the landings. If you do not work the soil against fungal diseases at high-quality seedlings it is rarely necessary to count.
During spraying or irrigation, observe personal hygiene. Be sure to wear rubber gloves, gauze bandage and clothes that cover the whole body. If the agent gets in his eyes or mouth, wash these bodies of water. Store "fitosporin" in a dry and closed room. Once you used the solution container from him and burn it or dispose of it.
Note that if from Phytophthora fruit began to get dark and spotted, the solution is already powerless. Because bacteria had already made his way inside the plant.
