Spring processing of bushes

Despite sufficient resistance to diseases and pests, in the spring, Yonker van Tets redcurrants need preventive measures that minimize the risk of anthracnose and such a dangerous plant parasite as a tick.

When infected with anthracnose, the leaves and shoots of the plant dry out and take on a burnt appearance. You can avoid the manifestation of these symptoms by treating currant bushes with fungicides and antifungal drugs. Bordeaux liquid and copper sulfate have good efficacy.

The currant bud mite is one of the most dangerous plant parasites of this berry culture.. The first sign of damage is the appearance of abnormally inflated buds on plants. At the next stage of vegetation, you can see clarified and deformed apical leaves. A good effect in the fight against pests gives scalding currant branches with boiling water, as well as processing plants Fufanon immediately before budding. You can use a solution of colloidal sulfur at the rate of 150 g per 10 liters of water.

An excellent prevention against damage to aphid bushes, caterpillars and powdery mildew is the periodic spraying of plants with the usual infusion of onion husks.
