Frost on vegetable crops

Frost conditions on vegetable crops


Frost conditions can have very different consequences on crops depending on the intensity of the frost, the stage of growth and the cultivated varieties. On annual open field vegetable crops, the impact of frost will be determining, causing the destruction the plants in severe cases. Under unheated shelters, even if frost risk is low, low temperatures lead to stunting with disturbances in their cycles (disturbed flowering, heterogeneous maturity), which can also be very detrimental in terms of yield, quality and delay of production for the season.


Reactivation of crops after a frost period

This action obviously concerns crops whose metabolism is still active and not vegetable crops or young vine plant entirely destroyed by frost. On vegetable crops stopping their growth, the revival of their development requires a reactivation of the root system in order to remobilize the water and mineral supply. Then, the addition of nutritional supplements and biostimulants (soil and foliar) will promote the growth of vegetation and will save time on the production and harvesting stages while limiting crop stress.

Actions :

Restoration of root development and improvement of crop resistance to stress with OSIRYL (certified root growth enhancer).

Activation of nutritional nutrition and correction of physiological dysfunctions of plants:
– In foliar sprays: ANTYS 15 and ANTYS 8, NUTRIKALI (nutritional supplements and biostimulants),
– Drip irrigation or sprinkling: NUTRIKALI (nutritional supplements)
