it grows best in acidic soils with pHs between 4.5-5.8.To obtain a lower pH (more acidic) will be used agricultural sulfur and / or peat, and to obtain a higher pH (more alkaline) will be used amendment.
To increase the percentage of organic matter in the soil will include sawdust and/or
peat, the necessary quantities will be
Determined according to the results of the soil analysis chosen for planting.

Biloanele can be formed according to the soil characteristics and the topography of the land, at a height between 30-50 cm from the natural rate of the land.
The terrain has to be plowed, discuited or milled. Scarificarea is recommended if the terrain is plan and drains hard. After the mentioned works, the rows will be drawn at distances equal to 3 m, the sawdust and/or peat will be administered in rows and will be trimmed for their homogenization in the soil, and then the Biloanele will form.
The Biloane will be mounted on the drip duct.
In order to maintain Biloanele cleaner without weeds, we recommend that they be covered with agrotextil, plastic foil or wood chips.
Planting distance of blueberries on the bilon can be between 0.5 m – 1 m.

Soil and planting characteristics for cranberry(Blueberry Bush)
Cranberry has a ecology similar to that of blueberry, being something more acidofil. The Red Blueberry Bush develops harmoniously on sandy land, well drained, with low Ph, between 4.0 and 5.0 values and a high content of organic matter. Planting Merisorului is done at the pit, in places with plenty of light and water source, they play a very important role in the growth and development of plants.
Blueberry Bush Raghavan
It can be planted in autumn or spring. Merisorului fertilization is done in spring, depending on the texture
Soil and is quite similar to that of blueberry. Fertilization is made with phosphorus, especially in the first year of planting to foster root development, nitrogen fertilization during the growth season. Weeding is very important especially in the first year of life, because cranberry is quite sensitive to weeds. Irrigation plays an important role, cranberry does not survive if its roots are completely dry.
