Idea recommendations before the temperature drops

• Stay tuned for developing weather conditions during this season at the end and beginning of the year.

• It is recommended to cover the plants with plastic wrap and moisten the soil in the late afternoon and early evening.

• Review planting calendars so flowering or harvest does not coincide with frost. It is recommended that crops are preferably in germination, which is the stage of development that is most resistant to this meteorological phenomenon.

• Plants may be partially or completely affected. However, the damage also depends on the species they belong to.

• Strengthen measures to cope with and mitigate the effects of this climatic event, according to the characteristics of each crop.

• Minimize tillage activities to avoid excessive loss of soil moisture.

• Plant trees in those plots where there is facility of irrigation or rain water harvesting.

• It is recommended to cover the plants with a plastic cover.

• Water should be available in the heap to speed up irrigation of crops and to moisten the soil in the evening.

• Use living covers to avoid soil dehydration. To reduce the effect of radiation on the soil, keep wild grass or some weeds in the cultivation lanes.

• Installing or maintaining living barriers that reduce the direct effects of cold winds.

• Maintain adequate crop fertilization as unhealthy crops are more susceptible to frost.

• Promotion of ecological agriculture, hopefully in harmony with silvopastoral systems. They cast shade and prevent the high brightness of the sun’s rays from drying the soil too quickly.

• In livestock, food sources other than direct ingestion of pasture must be available and rotation of pasture must be maintained.
