Weather Report: A Little Rain Goes A Long Way

Monday and Tuesday it rained; not a lot, just 20-25 mm (0.75-1 in), but enough to force us to use phytosanitary treatments against downy mildew and oidium. This morning we administered the treatment using copper and sulphur based products.

The rain hasn’t been all bad, though. The rain has helped those cultivating cereals (they needed it) and those that sowed sunflowers (the seeds germinate faster if it rains). A little bit of rain can be good for agriculture this time of year, even if we have to be careful with the grape vines.
