Especially it concerns sevka purchased if storage conditions are not known to you. The pilferers, the having large size and stored at low temperatures it is also necessary to warm up. For warming up of pilferers scatter about the warm battery or take out in warm spring days in the sun.
We process onion sets from diseases and wreckers
For 3-4 hours of pilferers ret in salt solution. Table salt 1 tablespoon with the hill is dissolved in one liter of warm water and submerge bulbs in solution. That they did not emerge, bulbs can previously be poured in kapron stocking or gauze sack. After salt bathtub of pilferers it is required to wash well with clear water, having several times replaced water.

The washed-out onion sets are retted for couple of hours in dark solution of potassium permanganate again from diseases as onions are inclined to fungal infections. 2 hours of pilferers later wash with water again and slightly air from excess water. Pilferers it is ready to landing. Instead of potassium permanganate also such chemical means as copper vitriol, copper oxychloride will approach.
If there is need, pilferers can be killed for stimulation of roots in solution of epin, zircon, humate, in solution of mineral fertilizers. But onions in itself have large supply of power supply and do not need such additional treatments.
