Hello my dear community, today I want to share with all of you something that I am passionate about, and that is to exchange knowledge with my students in the area of agriculture, in a technical school. Something that I like to share with my students is that for the land to give us the best of its fruits we must take care of it and respect it and for this we try to the maximum not to use chemicals that in the long run will damage the soil that gives us so much despite the fact that many are determined to pollute it every day.
Today I will share with you an experience with my students of 4th year of diversified, where we made several beds and thus prepare to plant in them the crops of Junca onion (Allium schoenoprasum) and sweet bell pepper (Capsicum annum). We began by preparing the land by carrying out the respective agronomic management, starting with the cleaning of the existing substrate, removing stones and plant debris that could hinder the development of our seedlings. Something that we must take into account if we want to do it in our homes is that the substrate (soil) is loose, because it needs oxygen for its better development.
Something that I loved about this project is that my students were very enthusiastic about what they were doing, they put a lot of effort into the whole process. The planting of the onion was done asexually in the case of the onion, we chose this variety for our beds because it adapts to our climate and has a very fast development. We start immediately placing each bulb at a distance of 30 cm between rows and 10 cm between plants.
Something very important to keep in mind for the best development of our crops is to weed, since weeding would rob us of the nutrients necessary for our plants. For this crop we made an irrigation plan where the students organized themselves to irrigate in the morning and in the afternoon.
Something that we must take into account is that every so often we must water the plant since with the irrigation it uncovers its stems and this would hinder the necessary absorption that our plant needs for its good development.
The three and a half months that passed to harvest our onion, was really very enjoyable with my students, and in the photos we can see that they were very happy to see how all their hard work was worth it. The nice thing about this is that they themselves benefited from this item because everything harvested was delivered to the dining room of the institution.
