After the winter, during which there were very low temperatures in some places reaching even below -25 ° C with the simultaneous lack of snow cover, the spring thaw came during which winter tests of wheat and winter rape should be carried out, which will help to take appropriate actions and steps to minimize losses resulting from inadequate overwintering plants.
The factors influencing the overwintering of most cereal and winter rape crops, apart from the weather conditions prevailing during winter, also include the appropriate selection of varieties with high frost resistance and compliance with the appropriate sowing date. On the other hand, among the agrotechnical elements in the cultivation of wheat and winter rape, which have an impact on minimizing the risk of freezing in the plantation during winter, is the implementation of autumn fertilization with nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and microelements. The foliar application in DR GREEN technology is intended to protect plants against the devastating effects of unfavorable weather conditions in the winter. The purpose of our technology in the fall is to develop a strong root system and to thicken the plant's cell juices. Thanks to this treatment, during severe frosts, the conductive tissues are not damaged, because they do not increase their volume, and thus do not tear the plant structure.
The preliminary assessment of winter crops overwintering in winter crops carried out in all voivodeships of our country, using the leaf fertilization technology of DR GREEN CEREALS and DR GREEN RAPESEED, indicates that the plants coped very well with the stress conditions prevailing this winter. Based on the results of the tests carried out over the winter of wheat and winter rapeseed, it was found that all the harvested plants were alive and characterized by very good vigor.
Unfortunately, not all winter crops did as well as those on which DR GREEN leaf fertilization technology was applied. This is evidenced by the averaged results of the overall assessment of the winter overwintering of rapeseed and wheat carried out in individual provinces.
