Planting and caring for cabbage Kazachok
The planting system mainly depends on agricultural technology. It is important to water and nourish the plants regularly to obtain quality produce.
Although this variety can be grown by direct sowing into open soil, it is best to opt for the seedling method if unfavorable climatic conditions require it.
To obtain an ultra-early ripening crop, it is recommended to grow seedlings in a plastic container. Further, it must be moved to open ground at the age of 30-35 days. Plants find it easier to get through the transplant and take root at that particular age.
For planting seeds for seedlings, it is best to prepare a soil mixture. It should contain ingredients such as calcined turf soil, baking powder for the earth, and Fitosporin.
During the first 7 days, the soil with the planted seeds should be in a cool room, the temperature of which does not exceed 8 ℃. In the next 7 days, it is doubled. Watering the sprouts should be carried out when the soil dries out from the previous soil moisture.

Attention! The water used to water the seedlings should be cool.
The sprouts will be ready for planting in open ground after 45-50 days. This procedure is best done in cool, damp weather conditions. This will help the young plants not dry out in open sunlight.
If the time for transplanting seedlings has already come, and it is hot and dry outside, you must proceed as follows:
- Moisten the planting soil as much as possible.
- Plant seedlings in the evening.
If hot weather conditions persist for 10-14 days after planting, the seedlings should be protected from the sun. To do this, you can resort to old methods, such as burdock leaves. An important condition is the cleaning of the protection in the evening. If not followed, the seedlings can rot.
The trunks of seedlings transferred to open soil should not be exposed. Plants should be firmly and securely planted in the ground. To do this, you need to loosen the earth and sprinkle it near the cabbage trunks.
After transplanting Kazachka into open soil, the plants should be watered every two days. Warm water is ideal for watering this cabbage, but cool water will work as well.
The development of all varieties of cabbage, including Kazachok F1, is better if the required level of nitrogen is maintained in non-acidic soil. To reduce the acidity index, ash is added to the soil, and in order to increase the plants, they should be fed with urea a month after the first shoots.
Throughout the entire period of growth and development, cabbage of this variety should be fed twice more. For this procedure, you can use a mixture of part of the mullein infusion to 3 parts of water.
Advice! The first feeding consists of a urea mixture (1 g of urea per 1 liter of infusion). The latter should be supplemented with complex fertilizers, which contain superphosphate and potassium.
Diseases and pests
This variety is resistant to diseases causing mucous bacteriosis. Cossack is also resistant to black leg disease in the process of growing seedlings.
Maintaining the right conditions for the Kazachok plant will protect the crop from cabbage whites, slugs and cruciferous fleas.
The main way to protect cabbage from parasites is to plant such plants as mint, calendula and marigold near shrubs. The essential oils they contain will scare away harmful insects.
It is recommended to use Fitoverm for processing Kazachka. It is this drug that has a positive effect on early varieties of cabbage.
