Direct sticking through polythene mulches cheap and effective for PYO

Direct sticking through polythene mulches cheap and effective for PYO

Grower 106(10): 14-15

The results of a 3-5 year trial with black currant cultivars Ben Lomond, Ben More, Black Reward, Tenah and Tsema, grown for PYO (pick your own), carried out at Elgin, are reported. Black polyethylene mulch (500 gauge) 1 m wide was used on a site cultivated and prepared with 50 t/ha FYM + 50 kg/ha 14:15:21 NPK fertilizer. Groups of 4 hardwood cuttings were stuck directly through the polyethylene at stations 1.2 m apart with an inter-row spacing of 2.5 m, on 23 March 1982.
