In garden plots, pesticides are not the only things that help protect crops from pests and diseases. To this end, we offer you a number of tips on the use of environmentally friendly products made from plants.

To create a kind of "drug bank", raw materials can be dried for future use by storing them in paper or cloth bags. For the destruction of gnawing and sucking pests, decoctions and infusions are used, separated from plant residues. Treatments are best done in the evening or early in the morning, repeating them at intervals of 7-10 days. Since herbal preparations are active only in direct contact with insects, in order to improve adhesion to leaves in infusions and decoctions before spraying, it is necessary to add loose soap at the rate of 8-10 tablespoons per 10 liters of solution. Such formulations can be used both for disinfecting seeds and for spraying plants of different ages.
