Raspberry "Ruby necklace": variety description

Fundamentals of Agricultural Engineering

Raspberries should be located in well-lit areas with fertile soil and deep groundwater. For landing, it is necessary to prepare pits or furrows. The pits should have a width of 50-60 cm and a depth of 40−45 cm. Dig holes and prepare furrows two weeks before planting.

It is desirable to plant plants on high ridges with a significant amount of organic matter. During preparation, two buckets of peat or humus are required in each planting pit, as well as 1 liter of wood ash and about 30 g of Kemira Universal. After planting, watering is carried out. Further care is to carry out standard activities: watering, fertilizing, weeding, cultivating and preparing for winter.

In order to approximate the fruiting period and accelerate ripening in regions with relatively unfavorable climatic conditions, it is recommended to use all agricultural methods aimed at the best heating of the soil from early spring to autumn. It should be remembered that the Ruby necklace according to the established cultivation technology needs annual full removal of shoots in the autumn period.

Disease protection

Repairing raspberries of the Ruby Necklace variety are not too often attacked by plant parasites and are rarely affected by the main diseases of raspberry. At the stage of bud formation, raspberries in the evening are recommended to be abundantly sprayed with infusion based on tansy at the rate of 0.35 kg of dry grass per 10 l of boiling water. In autumn, it is very important to carry out full pruning and deep digging of the soil, which allows to destroy wintering insect pests.

To protect raspberries from spider mites and weevils, plants before the active flowering phase and in the autumn period need to be treated with fufanone or with such preparations as Iskra and Confidor. All diseased and damaged shoots must be cut out, and then burned.
