Pear: variety selection

Growing conditions

Sverdlovchanka pear trees are relatively unpretentious, and in conditions of high agricultural technology are able to significantly increase productivity. When choosing a site for planting these plants, preference should be given to loamy or sandy loamy soils. Soddy soil, slightly podzolic or medium-podzolic soils are excellent for cultivating this variety.

Under pear trees, the most lighted and well-warmed by the sun places should be assigned, protected from gusty and cold winds. The plant is most demanding for light during periods of flowering and fruit formation. Pear plantations are preferably located on the southern, southwestern or southeastern slopes. The bulk of the root system of the pear is located at a depth of 20 cm to 1 m, and the vertically directed roots of the plant reach a depth of 5 m. That is why when choosing a site for landing, you should pay attention to the depth of groundwater.

The main care for fruit trees is the correct formation of crowns, watering, fertilizing, as well as the fight against diseases and pests. Watering should be rare enough, but deep, with the penetration of moisture into the soil to a depth of not less than 70 cm. Regardless of the age of the fruit tree, in the spring period, about 30-40 g of ammonium nitrate or urea should be applied per square meter of plantings. During the autumn digging, it is recommended to add 55 g of superphosphate, 20-23 g of potassium sulfate and a couple of kilograms of humus for each square meter.

Reasons for falling fruit

When growing pears, not only beginners, but also experienced gardeners, may face the problem of fruit falling. The amount of the so-called scavenger can be large, which greatly reduces commodity productivity.

Significant pre-harvest fall of pear fruit is observed in case of too hot and dry weather, typical for August in most regions of cultivation of this plant. Most often, the fall caused by drought occurs a month before the start of harvesting. This feature is due to the formation of a peculiar cork-separating layer on the stem, which appears due to a lack of moisture and basic nutrients. Particularly strong fruit fall is observed when the crop is overloaded with the crop. The cause of fruit falling may also be prolonged stagnation of water under pear trees or damage to the plant by Septoria.

It is possible to reduce the risk of fruit falling off by timely watering the tree, as well as by applying a small dose of mineral fertilizers. Spraying the plant with the "KANU" means has good effectiveness. The spraying procedure can be combined with foliar top dressing of fruit plantings with urea or with the Kristallin product diluted in a proportion of 50 g per 10 l of water.
