Organic products are an alternative. Yeast is especially noteworthy. Spraying with their help will avoid the presence of microorganisms on the plant that can damage the tomatoes. How to prepare the yeast spraying?
To prepare the spraying, we need:
1/2 liter of milk (preferably 3 percent milk)
3 liters of water
p & oacute; a bar of gray soap (possibly).
Dissolve the yeast cube in 1/2 liter of milk. When the yeast dissolves, mix it with 3 liters of water. To ensure better settling of the prepared solution on the above-ground parts of the plant, it is worth adding a piece of gray soap bars.
We pour the prepared solution into a bottle with atomizer – thanks to this, it will be easier for us to accurately distribute the preparation on the plant. It is worth doing the treatment on dry evenings, repeating it every two weeks.
