Read and translate the text № 2: Preparing, Seeding, and Planting
Although different crops demand different preparation, some practices apply to almost any crop. And what you do before planting is just as important as what you do after. Preparing the topsoilis always key. Test it in late summer to determine if amendmentslike lime, sulfur, or phosphorous are needed to adjust acidity. If the soil is nutrient -deficient, add fertilizer.
Likewise, most fields require treatment with an herbicide.Waiting two weeks to plant after using some herbicides is recommended. Once the soil temperatureis right, planting can begin. The seeding rateis determined by the ideal seeds per poundand seeds per square foot.Be sure to calculate the appropriate plant density.A miscalculation will result in low emergence.The actual planting of seeds will vary by crop. Broadcast seedingmay work for some seeds, while seed drills work better for small grains such as wheat or oats.
