Everyone knows from childhood the taste of currant and its benefits. But in order for you to be able to harvest a good harvest of currants on your site, you need to properly care for it. One of the most important moments in the life of a currant is the spring processing of currants.
There is a large number of pests that endure the winter cold and "attack" the currant bush in the spring and summer. So that nothing happens to your favorite bush and crop, it is necessary to treat pests every spring and cut off old currant shoots.
Methods and types of preparations for pests:
- in spring, when there are no buds and leaves on the bush, pour boiling water over the currants, you can even add a little potassium permanganate. And if you missed such a time, then, if the buds have already appeared, you can cut off the buds already damaged by pests (swollen), and pour boiling water over the bush as well, and pour boiling water under the bush and sprinkle the hall;
- another way to control pests, this is not even a fight, but you just need to buy varieties that are most resistant to soil mites in your department of the VIR (All-Union Institute of Plant Growing) for your area and region. Having planted such a variety of currants, all problems with insects will disappear at once. It remains only to carry out prevention and feeding;
- Intavir helps from aphids, and also Agravertin, but with large volumes of processing, it will turn out to be expensive;
- spring treatment with colloidal sulfur also helps from the kidney tick, but, unfortunately, this remedy will not cope with ticks in one year, you can first reduce their colony, and later get rid of them altogether, etc.
At the expense of pruning currants in the spring, we can say briefly. In order to slightly rejuvenate the bush, it is necessary to cut 3-5 year old shoots under the root of black currant every spring and 5-7 year old ones - from red and white.
