Kuroda carrots are a popular crop for small-scale and organic farmers, as they are relatively easy to grow and can be grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.

Overall, Kuroda carrots are a tasty and nutritious vegetable that is enjoyed by many people around the world.

 

Sowing and Growing:

Carrots are one of the most important and most popular root plants rebottles and

Also, the methods of growing carrots differ from one place to another and to another, as well as from one method to another, so we will talk a little about some methods of planting carrots.

Kuroda carrot is also prized for its ability to grow well in a wide range of soil types and climates, making it a versatile and reliable crop for farmers. It is also often grown in home gardens due to its ease of cultivation and delicious taste.

The plant goes through several stages during its growth, as it completes its cultivation through seeds.

Seedling:

Carrot seeds are small and delicate, so it’s important to use them carefully.

It is necessary to Prepare the soil well before planting since the seeds of carrots are slow-growing, and its seedlings are poor in growth at the beginning of life.

It is required to grow one acre (3 – 5.1) kg of seeds of foreign carrot varieties when grown in a suitable atmosphere.

Planting in ponds: Carrots are planted in layers, spaced 20 cm apart in ponds of 2 x 3 square meters, and cultivation must be carried out in a homogeneous manner so that the costly thinning process can be dispensed with.

Planting in lines: Planting is done on both sides of lines with a width of (50-60 cm), that is, the planning is at a rate of 12-14 lines in the two stems, and the appropriate feather test is considered to avoid the negative impact resulting from planting in unsuitable of sidelines to obtain the highest productivity and increase the yield.

 

Planting in heavy soils at a depth of 1.5 cm and in light soils at a depth of 2 cm

It is better to follow the method of sedimentation in lines, given that the root is one of the intensively growing crops, such as wheat.

leakage method achieves the highest germination rates, with an efficiency of about 83% compared to its other counterparts. This method is also good in the case of drip irrigation in light sandy soils.

The best method for seed germination and cultivation is planting it in seedling trays and transplanting it after the emergence and completion of the first 3 true leaves, and planting in line so that the distance is 20 cm between each plant and another.

It is considered the most burdensome process, but it achieves more than 98% of the process. Cultivation and the best productivity, and the length of the vegetative total of the plant ranges between 13 and 20 cm per plant, as well as the width of the root fruit ranges between 4.2 cm, and this is considered the best measure in relation to the marketing size of the root.

 

Planting:

Watering

 

Keep the soil moist but not soggy, as excess moisture can cause the seeds to rot

Care should be taken with the water needs of the carrot plant, as increased moisture leads to increased vegetative growth, a decrease in yield, root production of poor color, and a decrease in sugar content. The lack of ground moisture leads to the formation of roots that are rather long, of poor color, rough in texture, and woody.

Water requirements and their regularity throughout the period of carrot growth have a significant impact on plant growth and yield. It is recommended to irrigate the carrots immediately after planting, and we determine its periods, long or short, according to the prevailing weather conditions and the growing season, if it is repeated every two weeks in the fall and spring and every 3 weeks in the winter in the case of flood irrigation.

Irregular ground moisture (heavy irrigation after a period of thirst) leads to the formation of cracked and irregularly shaped roots.

Soil:

Carrots prefer well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. To prepare the soil, remove any rocks or debris and loosen the soil to a depth of at least 12 inches. Add compost or well-rotted compost to improve soil structure and fertility.

 

Planting in heavy clay soil:

Carrots grow well in light, well-drained loamy soils and are grown commercially in sandy, loamy, loamy, and organic lands. Sandy lands are preferred when an early crop is desired, but the yield increases a lot and is not early in silty, loamy, and organic lands.

Clay soil for growing carrots can be difficult to work with, but that shouldn’t stop you from growing carrots. Here’s everything you need to know about growing carrots in clay soil.

The roots produced in the organic soils are rough in texture, the vegetative growth is abundant, the roots are branched and short conical in heavy soils, and obstacles in the soil such as stones lead to the formation of roots of abnormal shapes.

 

  1. Soil preparation: Clay soil is heavy, compact, and poorly draining. To improve its structure, do the following:

Add organic matter: Add organic manure or animal waste, provided that it has been well sterilized and made sure that it is free of fungal and bacterial diseases to improve soil structure, drainage, and nutrient content. Aim for at least a 5-inch layer of organic matter over the clay soil and mix it well to a depth of 15-20 cm.

 

Add sand: Coarse sand can help improve soil drainage and aeration. Mix a generous amount of sand and loamy soil with the organic matter.

Avoid over-stressing the soil: Clay soil becomes compacted easily, so it is essential to avoid over-tilling. Use a garden fork to gently mix the amendments.

  1. Choose the Right Carrot Varieties Choose the right carrot varieties for clay soil. The shorter, rounder ones are better adapted to heavy soils, such as the Kuroda Islands

 

Maintain soil fertility throughout the cultivation period by adding various agricultural fertilizers while preparing the soil before planting and using slow-dissolving agricultural fertilizers.

Avoid excessive organic fertilizers to avoid root dispersal, which leads to a decrease in productivity and a decrease in the quality of the carrots formed.

Weed control: Carefully remove the weeds, better by hand or with a hoe, being careful not to disturb the roots of the carrots.

The growth of carrot plants is weak in the principle of their life and they cannot compete with the weeds at that time – with good hoeing as it should in the case of planting on lines and piling some soil around the plants in the late hoeing’s, ensuring that the shoulders of the roots do not protrude above the surface of the soil; Since they are colored green if they are exposed to light, hoeing takes place after the plant is integrated, and the plants reach bodies that are easy for the worker to distinguish from weeds.

In short, growing carrots in clay soil requires more attention to soil preparation, proper carrot variety selection, and proper care during growth. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to grow healthy and tasty carrots even in clay soil.

 

Fertilization: Carrots are one of the crops that stress the soil, so the soil must be well prepared before planting with organic matter to equalize the texture, as well as adding organic matter to the soil that raises the fertility of the soil.

Also, attention should be paid to nitrogen fertilization for the safety and health of both the vegetative system and the roots, but please be careful because excessive nitrogen fertilization leads to an increase in the vegetative system according to the root system and a decrease in the percentage of sugar inside the carrots, as well as an increase in moisture in the root zone so that the roots become Soft is susceptible to fungal infections, and the percentage of its addition per acre is about 60 kilos per feddan

The proportions of phosphorus and nitrogen must be balanced during fertilization operations, as the element phosphorous is the most important element for the healthy growth of roots and an increase in the percentage of sugar within the carrots, and the roots are strong, oblong, of higher quality, in the percentage of sugar, and the percentage of its addition is about 15 kilos per acre.

 

As well as the balance between nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, and we can ignore the role of potassium, as it is one of the elements that control sugar levels within partial carrots, the growth rate in plants and carrots, the average percentage of potassium in the soil with an effect of 100 kg per acre.

 

Planting in sandy soils:

As we mentioned earlier, carrots are carrots that love light, well-drained soil.

Sandy soil drains well but does not hold moisture. Soil the soil, mix in some organic matter such as barn compost.

 

  1. Soil Preparation:

There is no doubt that sandy soil is the best way to cultivate it by planting it on lines on two blades by dripping, because carrots are not among the plants that can be grown by spraying, except in the case of loose spaces using pivots.

Mix some organic materials such as treated animal manure or vegetable waste, if they have been treated thermally to get rid of any fungal infections that may cause damage to plants and soil. This will help increase the soil.

Sow seeds: carrot carrots in spring carrots. Make sure the soil temperature is at least 45 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Carrot seeds. Plant them about 1 cm deep and 10-15 cm apart

Carrots in the sandy soils directly in the soil because that does not allow you to do so because it germinates, and growth replaces that with planting seedlings and growth.

 

Watering: Sandy soil dries quickly, so it’s important to keep the soil dry until the seeds germinate. work.

However, a problem appears in the islands, which are spaced between 1 and 2 inches apart.

Fertilization: carrots are one of the soil-stressed crops, so the soil must be well prepared before planting with organic matter to equalize the texture, as well as adding organic matter to the soil that raise the fertility of the soil, as well as equalizing the texture of sandy soil, and prepare it for cultivation

 

Also, we should care about nitrogen fertilization for the safety and health of both the vegetative system and the roots, but please be careful because excessive nitrogen fertilization leads to an increase in the vegetative system according to the root system and a decrease in the percentage of sugar inside the carrots, as well as an increase in moisture in the root zone so that the roots become.

 

The proportions of phosphorus and nitrogen must be balanced during fertilization operations, as the element phosphorous is the most important element for the healthy growth of roots and an increase in the percentage of sugar within the carrots, and the roots are strong, oblong, of higher quality, in the percentage of sugar, and the percentage of its addition is about 15 kilos per acre.

Likewise, a balance must be made between nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, and we cannot overlook the role of potassium, as it is one of the most important elements that control sugar levels in carrots, given that it is the element responsible for the transfer of nutrients from the leaves in the form of carbohydrates to the roots in the form of sugars, and this is what adds value Economic marketing to the carrot plant. Potassium addition rates range in the soil with an effect of 100 kg per acre. Potassium is the only element whose increase does not cause any toxic symptoms or harm to the plant.

In contrast to clay soils, fertilization in clay lands is done by tamping with slow dissolving, spraying, or foliar fertilizers, given that the irrigation method used is often immersion.

In cultivation in sandy lands, it is through the fertilizers that are attached to each land cultivated using drip.

This helps the carrots to grow easier and faster, and to obtain the best amount of nutrients needed for growth, in addition to the sandy soil texture that allows the carrots to grow, expand and reach the desired final shape.

Carrot Benefits:

Carrot is a root vegetable available in a variety of colours, consisting of purple, black, red, white, and yellow.

It includes carotenoids, flavonoids, polyacetyls, vitamins and minerals, all of which provide a variety of nutrients and health benefits. Carotenoids, polyphenols and vitamins present in carrots act as antioxidants and anti-carcinogens.

and immune boosters, thus proving the old saying that carrots are excellent for the eyes. It has been proven that carrots have anti-diabetic, cholesterol and heart disease, antihypertensive, hepatoprotective, and wound-protective effects.

Carrot seeds contain extracts with heart-healthy, liver-healthy, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties.

A crop high in biochemical elements such as carotene and soluble fiber, as well as a variety of other functions

Consumption of carrots is gradually increasing as they are recognized as a valuable natural antioxidant with anti-cancer properties.

Apart from being used in salads and curries, carrot roots are also professionally processed to produce other nutritionally rich commodities such as juice, concentrate, dry powder, canned, preserved, pickled, and ghuzra. Carrot pomace, which contains about 50% carotene, can be used to improve goods such as cakes, bread and biscuits, as well as to make a variety of useful products. Health promoting nutritional content.

Raw carrots consist of 88% water, 9% carbohydrates, 0.9% protein, 2.8% dietary fiber, 1% ash and 0.2% fat. The dietary fiber of carrots is mostly cellulose, with smaller proportions of hemicellulose, lignin and starch, the free sugars in Carrots include sucrose, glucose, and fructose.

 

Carrots get their distinctive, bright orange colour from beta-carotene, and smaller amounts of α-carotene, γ-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and α- and β-carotenes are partially metabolized into vitamin A, providing more than 100% of the daily value.
