The procedure is repeated after the occurrence of the 5th, 6th and 7th pages, with a certain number of sheets left and ovary.
pinching process is carried out before flowering, whenit is necessary to act very carefully so as not to damage the main stem and leaves are available. For convenience and to avoid damage to vines can equip a pair of scissors with rounded ends.
What you need pasynkovanie
; If favorable conditions are created for the plantgrowth, it produces a large number of shoots and leaves, as a result of the culture itself suffers from the lack of light. Home whip starts to grow faster and higher, competing with the stepchildren for the light, thereby increasing the space between the leaves and there is a tendency to reduce the number of the leaves themselves. Since the formation of ovaries cucumber takes place in the leaf axils, it is not the best way affects the yield.
; When pasynkovanii cucumbers need to act verygently: one hand lightly pull the sheet and the other nip off stepson at the very base of the stem. Not all side shoots to be removed. After all, the main stem is used for the formation of male flowers, and stepchildren - female. Therefore, to ensure the normal process of pollination of some of the laterals left.
As a pinch
; When properly pinched cucumbers can be growna plant with a strong stem, the required amount of leaves, healthy side shoots and a lot of fruit. Regardless of the cultivated varieties pinch is only necessary after the formation of the sheet 4 on the main whip. All stepchildren and leaves it below the level necessary to remove the plant and tie up to the trellis. On the side shoots that have emerged between the 4 th and 7 th leaf, it is necessary to leave the 1st sheet and the first ovary. Sam escapes pinch and if necessary, tie up to a trellis. At the same time, it is recommended to fertilize cucumber with humus, suitable for this purpose and the finished fertilizer. Timely watering and good ventilation contribute to better productivity.
Further, pinching scheme is the same: 9 is formed as the second sheet, pinch suckers again, each of them has already on sheet 2 and two ovaries. Pasynky, formed by sheet 11 will have already on sheet 3 and 3 ovary and so on. As the main stem growth it is wrapped around a trellis, a further increase by another half a meter will give a signal that you need prischipnut growth point. It then remains only to monitor the growth of side shoots, removing the extra time and leaves the ovary.
