How to water tomato seedlings with yeast


For some time, the yeast unfairly stopped using as a top dressing. This was due to the appearance of synthetic mineral fertilizers. But soon, many realized that natural supplements are more useful. Therefore, those who care about their health and want to eat organic food, again switched to organic.

Yeast Benefits

Yeast dressing for tomato seedlings is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. They also contain protein and carbohydrates in large quantities. Yeast fertilizers promote active growth of plants due to the content of calcium, potassium and phosphorus. They make the root system stronger. It is important that the yeast have the ability to improve the quality of the soil. The fungi in their composition help to form microorganisms that accelerate the ability to process organic fertilizers. Thanks to these processes, the soil is enriched with potassium and nitrogen, and tomatoes become more resistant to diseases.

So, what do we get by feeding tomatoes with yeast:

  1. Rapid and abundant root growth.
  2. The rapid growth of stems, the emergence of new shoots, which also give a good harvest.
  3. Even in inappropriate conditions, seedlings will grow well and develop.
  4. High disease resistance to fungal and viral diseases.

We will see how you can prepare a yeast-based fertilizer, and how to use it properly, so that it will only benefit the tomato seedlings.

How to make a yeast top dressing

The first and most common recipe is very easy to prepare. It is necessary to combine half a kilo of fresh yeast and 2.5 liters of water in one container. Next, you need to mix the solution so that the yeast is completely dissolved. We set aside the capacity for one day to insist. Now we take a bucket, pour 10 liters of water into it and add 0.5 liters of yeast mixture. Under each bush pour 5 liters of this solution. This number of ingredients is designed for 10 bushes. So when preparing the mixture, consider how many tomatoes you have planted.

Important! Top dressing seedlings yeast solution is made only in a moist soil. Prepare the soil in advance so that it is not dry, but not too wet.

Top dressing from dry yeast

Dry yeast is also great for tomato seedlings. For the preparation of feeding you need the following ingredients:

  • ten grams of dry yeast;
  • two tablespoons of sugar;
  • ten liters of water (warm).

Mix all the components and let stand in a warm place for about three hours. Before watering the mixture should be diluted with water. At 1 liter of the mixture will need 5 liters of water.

You can make this mixture more useful by adding two grams of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) to the same amount of ingredients. Also add land to the proportions of about 1 handful. This solution must be infused longer, it is better to leave for a day. Stir the mixture several times. Dilute in the same way as in the previous recipe, and water the tomatoes.

Top dressing with milk

This fertilizer is suitable not only for tomatoes, but also for cucumbers. So, having prepared this dressing, you can kill two hares at once. One kilogram of live yeast is diluted in five liters of milk. Insist 2-3 hours. One liter of this mixture must be diluted in ten liters of water, and you can water the tomatoes.

Top dressing from live yeast and nettle

To prepare the mixture will need a capacity of two hundred liters. We pour into it 5 buckets of nettle, two kilograms of yeast and one bucket of cow manure. Serum is also sometimes added, but this is optional. If you do decide to add, then these proportions will need three liters of serum. Mix all the ingredients and pour water to the edge of the container. Next, you need to leave the mixture infused in a sunny place.

Important! Heat contributes to the fermentation process.

Watering the tomatoes with this dressing is necessary during the period of fruit formation. Under each bush pour in 1 liter of the mixture.

Top dressing with chicken manure

To prepare this fertilizer will need the following ingredients:

  • 10 grams of dry yeast;
  • extract from litter - 0.5 liters;
  • five tablespoons of sugar;
  • 0.5 liters of ash.

We combine all the ingredients and leave them for several hours so that the solution will infuse and begin to ferment. Further, we part it with 10 liters of water and we make watering.

Tip! Fertilizers that contain chicken droppings cannot be injected under the root of a plant. In order not to damage the root system of tomatoes, should be watered around the bush.

How to feed the yeast correctly

To feed tomatoes can only be a couple of weeks after landing in the ground. This time is necessary for the plant to take root and take root in a new place. If you decide to feed tomatoes with yeast solutions, remember that for the entire growth period such procedures can be done no more than two times.
