How to deal with spring frost

Spring is upon us, but sudden temperature drops and risks of frost can often occur, and are cause for concern for fruit, olive and citrus growers.
To reduce the chance of damage to the crops, it is essential to start a preventative action. It is important to use high purity formulas, in order to increase the salinity in the cells of sensitive organs (gems, buds, flowers), therefore decreasing the freezing point.

In case of intense frost or delay in the application of preventative treatments, it is possible to help the plants recover from stress with organic products rich in aminoacids, able to revitalize the compromised tissues.
