Moldovan vineyards are not recommended to postpone the laying of new plantations

Experts do not consider the predicted cooling with nighttime frosts to be a serious enough risk for new vineyards.

Specialists of the Table Grapes Manufacturers Association of the Republic of Moldova recommend that, in conditions of extremely early and arid spring, start planting new vineyards as early as possible. They do not consider the predicted cooling with nighttime frosts to be a serious enough risk. During the two weeks during which the seedlings take root, it will probably warm. From this point of view, it is much more dangerous to wait for precipitation and moderately warm weather, the next transition “from winter to summer” is more likely.

At the same time, winegrowers note that over the past three weeks, precipitation in the form of wet snow and rain fell in places on the territory of the Republic of Moldova. Moreover, in a number of districts in the south of the country where most of the assets of the viticulture industry are concentrated, the soil moisture level is higher than in the center of Moldova. Also, back in February, agronomists of fruit-growing associations recommended that farmers in the daytime at a positive atmospheric temperature periodically include irrigation systems. Separate farms followed this advice and at the same time set the stage for the laying of new plantations.

This week, weather forecasters predict the unstable weather in Moldova, with a periodic decrease in atmospheric temperature, night frosts and precipitation, in some places in the form of snow. With this in mind, some agricultural enterprises are inclined to the decision to postpone the laying of vineyards for a period of more stable weather.

Over the past few years, about 1.5-2.0 thousand hectares of vineyards are planted in the Republic of Moldova annually, including table varieties – up to 1 thousand hectares.
