Celery cultivation techniques

Celery Planting season

Celery in open field in North China is suitable for growth of celery cultivation, autumn climate is the most long, so the yield, quality, cultivation area. Celery can cultivation in a variety of protection, to achieve annual supply. The general cultivation in spring from 1 to February in the greenhouse seedling, 4 months from late March to late May to July, planting, harvesting, autumn cultivation, sowing in mid June to early July August, seedling, mid September to mid October to December for planting, harvest. General protected cultivation in July, mid August to early sowing and seedling colonization in 9 ~ November coldframe or modified solar greenhouse, from January to March harvest.

Celery Planting and management

Celery seedling is difficult, should choose the higher terrain, convenient irrigation and drainage and loose soil, fertile sandy loam as seedling beds. To apply sufficient base fertilizer for composting, loosen the soil to apply some manure. To achieve the fast emergence, and Qi, 7 ~ 8 days before sowing, for seed germination. 6 months, late sowing, first with cold water 12 to 14 DEG C for 12 to 24 hours, the seed panning clean, cool place to air dry for a while, the seed surface drying, wrapped with a wet towel, put cold place (15 to 20 DEG C) light germination, washed 1 times with cold water every day. After the seeds were exposed shoots can be used wet sowing, sowing method, namely the first poured water, water after mixing sand to sow. Check up seedling shade, cooling, sunscreen, anti rain.
 Celery Celery
After sowing covering soil to thin uniformly, keep moist seedling beds, generally every 1 to 2 days early, late poured a little water, until the seedlings of Qi, spring and autumn sowing can not take shade, should wash poured small water, in order to facilitate the emergence of. In order to reduce the harm of weeds, but after seeding emergence before 25% WP Nitrofen 0.75 ~ 1Kg/ mu, adding 80 ~ 100Kg, spray evenly on the soil surface. The 2 leaf seedling time seedlings, seedlings from 1cm. Seedlings of 3 ~ 4 pieces of a seedling, seedlings from 8 to 10cm square, seedlings of work, to promote the differentiation of root and seedling cultivation, leaves, can Topdressing Urea 10Kg/ mu, and remove all coverings, to facilitate the exercise of seedling. The seedlings grow to 5 ~ 7 for seedling height of 15 ~ 18cm, can be planted. Pay attention to preventing the harm of aphids, leaf blight etc..

Celery Pest control

Early blight of celery: Celery also called early blight Spot In general, cold and wet conditions occurred serious, is a major impact on the high yield and quality of celery, prevention measures:
A. implementation of rotation, disease and other vegetable crop rotation in 2-3, and the timely spraying on the ground High lipid membranes Waterproof moisture evaporation, prevent soil compaction, pathogen isolation.
The selection of disease resistant varieties b.. Seeding should be used for disease free seed, the seed will gradually in 48 degrees of water soaking for 30 minutes, remove the dried seeds after cooling into cold water after sowing. Before use High lipid membranes Seed dressing, isolation of the virus infection, strengthen the respiratory intensity, improve seed germination rate.
To strengthen the management of fertilizer c.. Reasonable density, water, drought and waterlogging growth period, watering should prevent flood irrigation, to strengthen ventilation, reduce the humidity, and spraying of high moisture evaporation in waterproof membrane, timely spraying of celery growth period Vegetable stem Zhuang Ling The plant stems stout, leaf hypertrophy, leaf color is tender, and can improve the anti disaster ability of celery.
D. chemical control. At the early stage of the disease timely removal of diseased leaves, and spraying medicaments High lipid membranes The formation of protective film, enhance the efficacy, control of airborne bacteria invasion.

Celery The colonization of injury prevention

Change cropping system for crop rotation, as a crop, and other crops, rational rotation.
The use of compost organic fertilizer and bio organic fertilizer (such as agricultural newspaper Yeast Organic fertilizer as base fertilizer, combined with soil) Insecticide Deep plowing, soil, reduce soil compaction.
Hymexazol 3000 times liquid + newspaper nongshile Feng 1000 times or 6.25% a fine of 3000 times liquid of fludioxonil + earthworm chitin 1000 times liquid ester dipping root after cultivation for 70% evil before planting.
After planting for 25% a propamocarb 600 times liquid +72% streptomycin 3000 times or 70% times liquid 3000 hymexazol +50% Thiram 1500 times liquid + newspaper nongshile Feng 1000 times or 6.25% a fine of fludioxonil 3000 times liquid +3% Zhongshengmycin + earthworm chitin ester 800 times liquid 1000 times liquid foliar spray can effectively prevent the occurrence of physiological diseases and soil borne diseases.

Celery Prevent bolting

1, scientific selection: selection of winter, the vernalization stage needs strict conditions of varieties, also can choose the vigorous vegetative growth of varieties.
2, the new species, new, plump seeds than aged seeds grow in the vigorous plant, early bolting is. The spring summer winter celery seed, weak, bolting phenomenon is serious, and the use of autumn planting seed, the seed, winter, early bolting is. Seed should be in strict accordance with the operation of agronomic technical requirements, to prevent the premature bolting of seed plants, otherwise it will greatly reduce the varieties of winter, causing quality degradation, exacerbated the phenomenon of premature bolting.

Celery Legends

 Celery Celery
The genus name Apium celery from Celtic APON, meaning "water". The word Graveolens in Latin means "gravity". The ancient Egyptians and Greeks often linked together with celery funeral; however they see visible celery as the symbol, sorrow and death, always the actual Egyptians to reduce the swelling of limbs with celery.
In recent times, we can find some celery, in seventeenth Century on the southern boundary of alkaline earth; more by the Italians for planting. While the original varieties developed from many different varieties. Celery is sometimes called 'aromatic' because the whole conium maculatum, plant in cooking, plays a role of commonly used in perfumery, soup and salad, it is rich in minerals, can provide a low salt food. Carle Pei argued that this herb can relieve wave "barriers to women", thus it has positive influence on the reproductive system. In addition, it is known for bird feed, nerve tonic, and Flavoring .
Spring and autumn season, the snake eggs attached to the celery, people mistakenly put it together with food to eat celery, cause disease, appear pale purple, abdominal bulge symptoms like pain like pregnancy, this is the Dragon disease. Should eat candy two or three liters, three times a day, until spit like lizards filth after the symptoms disappeared. Li Shizhen said: the growth of celery in the water. How can be the most changeful Jiao, the sperm egg attached to celery? May be Lizard And the snake like animal, mate in the spring and summer when the * * left there it. Besides the snake love celery, which is sufficient to prove the above conclusion.

Celery How to choose

Celery is a unique flavor of vegetables. Celery and have good water Qinggan role, regular consumption can stimulate the body detox, have good Detox Slimming effect. So, how to choose the tender celery?
Appearance: buy celery stalk, should not be too long, 20 cm to 30 cm, short and stout is better to green leaves, yellow.
Look at the leaves of fresh celery leaves is flat, and longer storage time of celery leaves, the tip will tilt, Ye Ziruan, yellow, even from rust. In addition, deep green leaves of celery should not buy, because the crude fibre, the taste of the old.

There are 4 main types: on the market of celery, celery, green Huang Xinqin, Bai Qin He Meiqin, general Qin Qing Huang Xinqin Sauvignon; rich, soft white light, crisp; Qin; Qin beauty tasteless, crisp taste, can choose according to need.

Celery Disease prevention and control

Celery during the growth period, especially in the mid and late period, white spots, often appear in the cross section of the hollow petioles, petiole or transverse and longitudinal cracking. The causes and solutions are described as follows:
[] the boron deficiency in the soil is a major cause of petiole cracking. Solution: each 667m2 0.5~1 kilograms of borax as base fertilizer, once found a slight crack handle, available 0.2%~0.5% borax aqueous solution Foliar spray, or with aqueous solution of borax 0.25% root irrigation.
[sowing or improper] in less nitrogen fertilizer in autumn planting sowing too late, and lack of nitrogen fertilizer, plant growth, harvest season was not up to the standard recovery, and in the case of delayed harvest, vulnerable to low temperature, cold invasion, petiole softening, hollow phenomenon intensified. Therefore, the country should be based on the local climate condition and cultivation facilities to determine the proper sowing time, and strengthen the management of fertilizer in the early and mid growth, providing adequate nitrogen.
[cold] celery plants not cold resistant, when the temperature is 0 degrees centigrade or 0 degrees Celsius is prone to cold symptoms. When plants are serious cold, petiole tissue destruction of the structure when the temperature rises, the organization can not be restored, the cell gap increases, so hollow. So, in the course of cultivation should be used to prevent cold heat preservation measures, avoid the overwintering.
[] celery celery and common varieties degradation prone to natural hybridization, the seed must be strictly isolated in celery, and other varieties of celery seed production at the same time, in the process, should prevent the choice of some hollow plant seed, in order to avoid thousands of hollow plants increased the proportion of.
