The soil for the beans is dug up in the fall using a spade. Humus and mineral fertilizers are added. Before sowing, the seeds are soaked in water for 2-4 hours. Then the seeds are sown in moist soil to a depth of 6-8 cm in a tape method with a distance between tapes of 50-60 cm and between rows in a tape of 25-30 cm. The distance between plants in a row is 3-5 cm.
Further care of the plants consists of loosening, regular fertilizing, light hilling and watering in dry weather.
At the beginning of mass flowering, the tops of the shoots are cut off, which promotes uniform ripening of the beans and is a means of combating black bean aphids.
