For transplanting crops, it is better to carry out the first treatment in five or six days after planting out. Further treatments are carried out 15 or 20 days apart.

The first treatment is carried out by seedlings or in 5 or 6 days after transplanting; the second treatment is carried out in the stage of 4 or 5 true leaves; the third treatment is carried out in the stage of budding– blossoming.
