Causes of yellowing of leaves
Why do cucumbers turn yellow leaves?
The reasons can be as follows:
- Incorrect watering. In this case, both inadequate and excessive watering is harmful. If you water the cucumbers in small portions and often, the water will not have time to reach the roots, but will only be absorbed into the soil, as far as possible. The root system will begin to move towards the humid earth, thereby exposing itself to excessive solar influence and destruction due to loosening of the soil. Nevertheless, to refuse from loosening it is not necessary. It is necessary only to carry out this procedure accurately and qualitatively. And that the roots were in their place, water the cucumbers abundantly and less often. In addition, when watering, avoid droplets on the leaves. Otherwise, the sun's rays will focus on moisture, thereby causing burns in the leaves. The best evening watering at room temperature.
- Mineral deficiencies also causeyellowing of the leaves. To fertilize the soil for cucumbers, use urea (urea). Fill the fertilizer as deep as possible so that the useful nitrogen has time to act, and not to evaporate.
- Excessive sunlight and hightemperature is another reason why cucumber leaves may turn yellow. To avoid this, choose for cucumbers a place where the sun is not so active will shine, best of all near trees and shrubs.
Also, do not forget to fertilize the land every year andchoose as far as possible a new place for planting the next crop of cucumbers. If you follow all these simple rules, you can not only get rid of the yellow leaves, but also significantly improve the quality of the crop.
