Frost on fruit trees

Frost conditions on fruit trees

Frost conditions can have very different consequences depending on the intensity of the frost, growing stages and cultivated varieties. As far as fruit trees are concerned, the frost impacts have serious consequences because the freezing of flower buds or young fruits will mean yield loss. Depending on their growing stages, the trees whose young branches and leaves have also suffered frost damage are in a more complex situation as the reactivation of new vegetation will require an increased mobilization of the reserves and possibly some pruning to prevent epicormic shoots from sprouting on the partly frozen branches.

Solution

Crop restart after a frost period

This action obviously concerns only crops whose metabolism is still active, exclusive of seedlings completely destroyed by frost. Regarding fruit trees affected by frost, the yield loss and damage to young limbs can have an impact on the viability of orchards. Indeed, the partial destruction of the vegetation will prove detrimental to the reserves of trees even if they do not bear fruit. The restart of these trees involves a reactivation of the root systems and the implementation of protective and healing treatments. As soon as young leaves start growing, nutritional supplements and biostimulants (soil and foliar) help to improve the growth and development of trees, promoting their reserves while limiting the impacts of stress.

 

Actions :

Reactivation of root growth and improvement of crop resistance to stress with OSIRYL (certified root growth stimulators).

Activation of the uptake of nutrients and correction of the physiological dysfunctions of plants:
– In foliar spraying: ANTYS 15, ANTYS 8, NUTRIKALI (nutritional supplements and biostimulant),
– Drip irrigation or sprinkling: NUTRIKALI (nutritional biostimulant).
