It is also important to carry out the fertilizing of the plant on time and correctly. Today, the most effective method is the treatment of tomatoes with boric acid.
Boron is considered to be the most important microelement, whichtomatoes are needed for fruiting and full development. As you know, it is perfectly absorbed by plants with foliar treatment. Boric acid is a popular remedy that helps protect plants from pests and various diseases.
Such microfertilizer is universalmeans by which the plant receives important elements. Particularly effective is the treatment of tomatoes with boric acid in the greenhouse. This procedure is considered the most suitable for germinating tomatoes. It should be noted that the acid is very useful in the fight against late blight.
To date, you can find manyvariants of top dressing for the germination of tomatoes. However, the use of boric acid is considered to be an effective and popular method, since it possesses useful properties that help to germinate tomatoes. Such tomatoes will be enriched with vitamins and beneficial microelements.
Useful properties of boric acid:
Processing of tomatoes with boric acid and iodine improves their growth, positively affects the fast ovary.
Use fertilizing should be in case the plant lacks the amount of an element such as boron. The most common phenomena indicating a lack of boron:
If these factors are identifiedthink about using a special solution of boric acid for processing tomatoes, which is an indispensable tool for improving the condition of the plant. Boric acid is recommended to be applied several times during one season. It does not harm the plant, does not affect the taste, does not harm the health of the consumer.
Application of fertilizing for the first time occurs during the preparation of seeds for the planting process.
This recipe for processing boric acid tomatoes is simple enough and helps to quickly plant seeded seeds. During the treatment of tomatoes with boric acid, the proportions of the solution are of great importance.
Another version of the use of boric acid: when cultivating the land before sowing. This occurs a day before the seed is planted, special pits are prepared, into which boric acid is later filled. After the procedure, seeds of tomatoes can be planted in a day. Treatment with boric acid allows the plant to germinate correctly.
There is no less effective way: it is necessary to take onion infusion, ash solution, soda, manganese and boric acid. In the onion infusion (500 milliliters) add 500 milliliters of the ash solution, then add the soda about 5 grams, 1 gram of manganese and 0.2 grams of boric acid. This method is the basis for processing tomatoes from phytophthora boric acid.
To spray tomatoes with a special solution of boric acid, you do not need to have certain skills and even experience. For this procedure, you need to buy a sprayer and a solution of boric acid.
Treatment of the plant with boric acid withThe sprayer should only be carried out under the condition of certain climatic conditions. So, the most suitable for carrying out of similar procedure there will be a solar and dry weather. It is important to note that spraying should only take place if the plant and fruits are in a dry state. It is also recommended to perform the procedure during the day. In the morning, dew appears on the plant, so the use of a solution of boric acid is prohibited.
To prepare the solution at the initial stage, it is necessary to determine its main purpose. So, there are two prescriptions for making boron solution.
These solutions should be used, correctlycalculating proportions, and for a specific purpose. If there is no time for independent preparation of the solution, you can purchase it in the store, where a wide assortment of various dressings is provided. Usually such a solution does not require much effort, it is only necessary to dilute the prepared top dressing with water of the right temperature.
Spraying of tomatoes is recommended invegetative period. It is this time that is considered most suitable for the accelerated formation of plant flowers. Spraying should take place several times.
There are 3 main stages of processing tomatoes using spraying:
It is worth noting that for tomatoes is very importantthe correct procedure for using fertilizers. Spraying always occurs on time. Thus, the interval between the first and second spraying should not be less than 10 days.

If the condition of the plant has worsened, it is desirable to abandon the use of this fertilizing.
One of the signs indicating a lack of boron in the plant are yellowed leaves. Some vegetable growers characterize this phenomenon as a shortage of nitrogen, which is considered erroneous.
In addition, if you look closely atplants, you can see the twisting leaves. This indicates that it is necessary to urgently spray the stems of plants with boric acid. If the leaves crumble, it is recommended to strengthen the tomatoes, after fertilizing.
To obtain a double effect, it is desirable to make the treatment with fertilizers and boron, which will prevent the appearance of late blight, and will supply the plant with the necessary substances.
Signs indicative of a lack of boron:
If such symptoms appear, it is important to take urgent measures to help the plant blossom and bear fruit.
So, boric acid prevents sheddingovary and activates the flowering of the plant. Along with this, the rotting of fruits in the period of excessive humidity is prevented. The use of the means allows to increase the yield up to 20%.
The treatment of tomatoes with boric acid isA unique method for the correct formation of a tomato bush. It is important to know that when creating a solution of boric acid, you need to approach this case with great responsibility. Do not forget that the wrong proportions applied to the plant can lead to the death or deformation of the bush.
