Presowing seed treatment

There are several manufacturers of carrots seeds Canada F1, however, according to reviews of vegetable growers, planting material from the agricultural companies "Search" and "Gavrish" shows the highest germination rate. Untreated seeds are characterized by tight similarity, therefore, subject to mandatory pre-sowing preparation:

  1. Sorting. Seeds are immersed in warm water and thoroughly mixed: low-quality and unlikely specimens will float to the surface.
  2. Heat treated. Seeds are immersed in water at a temperature of + 50 ... +55 ° C, and then dried.
  3. Sparging (keeping for one day in oxygenated water at room temperature). After that, the seeds are treated with a solution of potassium permanganate.
  4. Growth stimulant treatment: "Fitosporin", sodium humate.

It should be remembered that sowing germinated seeds accelerates the emergence of seedlings by about a week.

Sowing is carried out in late April or the first half of May. With the standard planting scheme, the seeds are buried by 1 cm, and the distance between the rows is 15-20 cm. The grown carrot seedlings are systematically thinned, leaving 5-6 cm gaps between the plants.
