Mulching with organic materials

August 12, 2017 17:52 | General Information About Plants

mulch cover made of organic materials is both protective and

kind of material

Material characteristics



rich in nutrients,

carefully grind, especially to draw at-

tion to fiber coarse stalks, it facilitates

green manure

have a low ratio of C: N,

cheat uniform distribution of material


characterized by a high content of

entire area.Writing material wilt not to


attract snails on fresh greens, or on their own invasions can suffer culture.Recommended mixing the materials with a low nitrogen content, such as straw, sawdust, bark


contains in its composition a lot of water,

Post material wilt, so as not to attract


has a low ratio of C: N,

snails, not mulch too thickly

when covered with a thick layer characteristics

because of the danger of high heat,

forms a high heat

recommended to mix grass clippings from the bark, leaves and chopped straw


material dry, contains little water

straw should be crushed, it is traditionally

its composition, has a high RATIO-

used as bedding for strawberries

wearing C: N, which corresponds tolow

to prevent rotting of berries is recommended

mu nitrogen content, characterized

smiling to accelerate the decomposition process podmeshi-

enoughlong decomposition process to accelerate which requires additional nitrogen

Vat to straw Blutwurst or bone meal


material dry, contains little water

Due to the long process of decomposition

its composition, has a low con-

sawdust used as a durable

zhaniem nitrogen, characterized by prolonged

mulch cover, for example,

nym decomposition process quickly

in tree trunks of fruit trees


and bushes or cover their garden paths.In order to accelerate the decomposition process of the material, if necessary, it is recommended to increase the nitrogen content by making nitrogen fertilizer at the rate of 50 g / m2 or mixing sawdust with other protein-rich materials: grass, post-harvest residues, immature compost

Tree bark

dry material, is characterized by high

usually used the bark of conifers,

ratio of C: N, figure acidic

very durable type of mulch with a layer of 7 cm

of from slightly acidic to neutral

need to cover no more than update

pH 4.5-5.5, the decomposition process

every three years, is also used in decorative

is slow, has

very valuable mulch material,

The main advantage of the immature compost quality


is characterized by a high content of

nitrogen, active substances and nutrients

that decomposition processes continue

nutritious layer.Decomposing mulch gives the soil nutrients and trace elements, active substances and biocatalysts, enriching the soil and improving its structure.In this regard, the process of mulching followed by decomposition of the organic material is essentially a form of humification and one of the ways to enrich the soil with humus.nutrient transfer processes take place in accordance with the needs of plants during the growing season, so special attention should be paid to the fact that no external influences do not violate the mechanism of decomposition and mineralization of nutrients.

mulching process followed by decomposition of the organic material is essentially a form of humification and one of the ways to enrich the soil with humus.

This form of compost pile is very convenient for direct spreading compost on the area of ​​land as an organic fertilizer and mulch

spring nepereprevshie remnants of winter mulch collect rake and lay in the compost, where they serve as an excellent disintegrating material

for mulchingcover well suited crushed post-harvest crop residues, green manure plants neosemenennye weeds, grass clippings, straw, leaves, sawdust, immature compost, rotted manure litter, shredded bark.Features mulching materials, their method of use and terms of expansion are different, and it is also necessary to take into account to avoid potential failures.

Some mulching materials have herbicidal action or repel pests.So, bark conifers inhibits the growth of weeds by it contains chemical components, and post-harvest residues tops of tomatoes on a bed of cabbage repel cabbage fly and butterfly cabbage.
