At the end of August and in September the root system begins to work for cucumbers in connection with fall of temperature badly. It absorbs from the soil of the necessary microelements and vitamins necessary for good fructification less. Therefore it is important to maintain high temperature of the soil. For this purpose cucumbers water only with warm water in the afternoon, after watering loosen the soil and strew with humus. At night in greenhouses it is necessary to use ukryvny material, and in the open ground to apply film to concealment of cucumbers again.
