Tips to reduce water use

We recommend mulching the beds.
Experience has shown that covering the ground with hay or straw can reduce evaporation by 80%. Keeping the beds evenly moist will create an optimal moist microclimate under the mulch. This not only helps the plants to grow, but also reduces the water consumption enormously. On our farm we only water every 2-3 days and irrigate a 200 m2 cultivation area in the Algarve in Portugal with 500l of water. Our beds are always moist, which promotes plant growth and crop quality.

It is also advisable to keep the beds moist at all times.
Even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time. Drying out the soil causes a huge reduction in the micro- and macro-organisms in the soil, resulting in an infertile soil.
Tests have shown that the addition of water to the entire bed is lower over a longer period of time than if it is only poured selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured areas, as opposed to the large dry volume, they dry out faster than if the entire volume of the bed were filled with moisture.
Similar to heating in an apartment.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to reach this level again and again.

The light blue autumn kohlrabi Dyna is an old and vigorous variety with a good shelf life. With sufficient moisture, very large tubers are formed with mild, tender and juicy flesh. The ancestors of our cabbage varieties can still be discovered today on the cliffs of Helgoland, on the English chalk cliffs and on the French Atlantic coast - because all the forms known today are descended from wild cabbage, which was cultivated from around the 16th century. Culture like super melt.

Planting information
Kohlrabi can be planted all year round in Portugal. Optimal at temperatures of more than 5°C. In contrast to direct sowing, it is recommended to prefer kohlrabi in small containers and plant them out as a seedling at a distance of 25x25cm. A consistently moist soil prevents the tubers from bursting open. The cultivation periods refer to the main cultivation times for other types of vegetables, since they are usually planted as a side crop. Harvest starts after 60 days with optimal handling.
