Summer radish "Agata" (daikon).
Early maturing variety. Ripens in 50-60 days after sowing. Root crops are long, large, white, of delicate taste, do not outgrow for a long time. Suitable for fresh consumption and for long-term storage.
There are 90-120 seeds in 1 gram.

* Fresh manure should not be applied under turnips, radishes and rutabagas, because this leads to hollow roots and overgrowth of tops. High yields are obtained with an uninterrupted supply of moisture to plants throughout the entire growth period. Rutabaga, turnip, radish are cold-resistant crops, they tolerate light frosts. The optimum temperature for growing rutabagas and turnips is 15 - 18 degrees, radishes 18 - 20 degrees. At higher temperatures, the taste of root vegetables coarsens. The plot must be sunny. Rutabaga is sown in early spring no later than May 10-15. Turnips and radishes for summer and autumn consumption are sown at the same time as rutabaga. For winter consumption, radish is sown on June 10-15, turnip - July 10-15. These crops are sown both on a flat surface and on ridges with a row spacing of 35-40 cm for radishes and turnips and 25-30 cm for turnips. It is impossible to thicken the radish, in a row the distance is 20-25 cm. The seeds are planted to a depth of 1.5-2 cm. They are sown with dry seeds.
Seedlings are also used for growing rutabagas. When caring for crops, it is necessary to periodically loosen the aisles.
To scare away and fight cruciferous flea beetles, plants are sprayed with various infusions (garlic, tobacco, etc.) or sprinkled with ash. It is important to start doing this in advance, to prevent the reproduction of pests. When the first two true leaves are formed, thinning is carried out, leaving between the turnip plants up to 6-8 cm, and the turnip and radish - 13-18 cm. After the breakthrough, it is good to feed 10-15 g per square meter with nitrogen fertilizers. meter (or slurry diluted 3-4 times). After 20-25 days, fertilizing with phosphorus-potassium fertilizers is carried out at 10 g per sq. meter (potash fertilizers can be replaced with ash 200 g / sq. meter).
Harvesting root crops is best done before the onset of frost. The leaves of the root crops selected from the ground are cut off and temporarily covered with earth with a layer of 8-10 cm. With the onset of stable cool weather, the roots are placed in a cool storage. The minimum return period is at least 3-4 years.
Inadmissible predecessors: cabbage, radish.
