Seeding and growing

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

 

Sowing and seedling stage

  Germination directly in the soil:

  1. Prepare the soil mixture and plant the seeds at a depth of 1 cm in the soil, where the seeds must be covered with soil for the success of the germination process (a mixture of 70% cocopeat – 10% vermiculite – 5% perlite – 15% plant compost is preferred. It cannot be Increasing the proportion of compost to 30% when the plant grows, and do not add any larger amount of organic fertilizer to the soil when planting carrots so that the roots do not branch out into the soil.

Growth stage:

It takes about 4 months for carrots to reach maturity, and during this stage, carrots need some important factors affecting their growth. The root growth period can be divided into 17 weeks.

Therefore, care must be taken to ensure that the soil is rich in various nutrients, such as vegetable compost, but at a rate not exceeding 15% to avoid dispersal of the roots.

The carrot gets its characteristic, bright orange color from β-carotene, and lesser amounts of α-carotene, γ-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. α- and β-carotenes are partly metabolized into vitamin A, providing more than 100% of the Daily Value (DV) per 100 g serving of carrots (right table).
