Seasonal update 2022: warm days, berry development and fungal disease management

Thursday, August 4, 2022

As in the case of a couple of weeks ago, we’re experiencing a heat wave these days. Without precipitations our soils don’t have the same moisture conditions compared a couple of months ago. It’ll be expected to see the plants a little limp, the tips starting to dry and, in some cases, where the clusters are exposed to the sun, they’ll show some symptoms as well. It’s important to keep calm, scout the vineyard and check the areas with new vines or new plantations, as these will have a less developed root system and might require some water depending on the local conditions. According to the weather forecast, next week we will receive precipitations, which will help to refill the soil profile and allow the plants to recover their turgidity through that week.
