Onions zero pests

While it may be early to plant onions, typically done in September and October, we want to introduce you to a supplement that ensures healthy growth without problems. Say goodbye to pests and welcome a bountiful harvest by learning the secret outlined in the next paragraph.


Onions: Planting Tips to Prevent Rot

To ensure proper growth without rotting, obtain onion seeds or use existing onions, depending on the time available. Then, prepare the special supplement known as mycorrhiza—a fertilizer that transfers essential nutrients to plants, such as copper, phosphorus, or zinc. Although not very economical, a small quantity goes a long way, lasting for an extended period, alleviating concerns.

Add the mycorrhiza like salt, with manufacturers recommending 5 grams per plant. Utilize a small scale to measure the correct amount accurately. Incorporate the supplement during planting, but remember to replenish the soil, as it doesn’t renew itself. Enrich the soil with humus, manure, organic material, and more to provide the essential elements for plant growth.

How to Plant Onions with Mycorrhiza

Prepare the soil by enriching it and consider using ashes, which complement onions and contribute to their growth by protecting them from parasites. The amount of ash depends on the soil quality—the tastier the soil, the less ash required.

The planting process is straightforward. Create holes about the depth of a punch since onions do not require deep planting. Place the small onion or planting in the hole, and add the mycorrhiza. A small handful is sufficient for each plant.

Ensure the onion sits on top of the fertilizer with the head resting on the mycorrhiza and the tail pointing upwards. Cover the meeting point between the onion and the mycorrhiza with a light layer of soil.

Add the recommended ash by sprinkling it around the onion, covering it with soil, and finally, replacing the ash on the surface. Create a circle around the plant with ash to deter pests. Repeat these steps for each onion to be planted, and you’re all set for a successful onion cultivation.
