The reason for the yellowness of the leavesFeatures of manifestation
Incorrect planting of seedlingsBerry culture is poorly developed in areas that are dry and not protected from the cold wind, as well as in wetlands
Inadequate planting datesIn the spring, planting of seedlings is complicated by late return frosts, so the plant adapts faster and develops best during autumn planting
Incorrect bush formationWhen planting, it is extremely important to short-cut the shoots, which will enhance growth and accelerate the formation of new, more powerful shoots. The lack of pruning provokes an overload of the plant with leaves
Aphid and fungal infectionBushes weakened by improper care are affected more quickly by diseases and pests. Prevention minimizes plant damage
Plant agingThe standard productive period of berry culture does not exceed 16-18 years. The implementation of competent care, including top dressing, the formation of bushes and systematic watering, can extend the productive period of the plant
