Sugar beet cultivation continues according to the technological map

As we know, sugar beet should be planted in fertile soil free from weeds. Although weeds are first combated by pre-sowing cultivation in spring, they reappear in the field after sowing. Weeds consume 1.5 times more water than cultivated plants. Weeds use 50 liters of water to produce 1 gram of dry matter.

At the same time, the weeds absorb the fertilizers given together with the sowing faster, minimizing the effective use of sugar beet. For example, research has determined that weeds carry 60 kg of mineral fertilizers from one hectare. Also attracts a number of pests.

Thus, wireworms at the initial stage feed on couch grass (Elytrigia repens L.), the European corn borer on common mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris L.), and the cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera Hb.) on ragweed (Ambrosia) or amaranth (Amaranthus). Later it spreads to sugar beet fields. Therefore, weed control in sugar beet fields at the 1st stage of its development is important. When controlling weeds, the 1st spraying using various herbicides is carried out immediately after germination, when the weeds are in the stem stage, and the 2nd and 3rd sprayings are carried out at an interval of 10 days. Currently, our farms are carrying out the first spraying against weeds.
