As you can see on the display of the scooter, today at 17 o'clock there was 25 ° C, but at night it goes down to 6 ° - 8 ° C.
The problem is the excessive temperature difference between day and night, especially for us fruit farmers.

Different worlds. I have no experience as a fruit farmer. Or, any kind of farmer. In our part of the world (deep south Texas, sub-tropical climate zone), there is plenty of citrus (mostly grapefruit and oranges) and sugarcane.

And, for full disclosure, 10º of difference (fahrenheit) from day to night is a big swing. Yesterday, the high was 87º, the low was 81º.

Hope Mother Nature is kind to you with your fruit crop. And, you have time for some scooter riding.

Here it's ~85°F daytime, ~45°F at night, so similar.

We're seeing similar ranges this time of year. The fruit crops, except for apples, are finished. And the apples aren't far behind. I've seen 6C in the morning up to 27C recently.

Almost time to put the Tucano Urbano apron on the scooter!

There is an early fall of the leaves and a disease that kills the plants, by me (5 hectares) is 20%. The water of the groundwater to irrigate has a salinity of 1200 ms against the approximately 600 ms of 6 years ago ...
If this continues, i will have to close at the most in three years. Crying or Very sad emoticon

Bellisimo! Can you send some stateside? They make wonderful ice cream and just on their own. Good luck with your harvest, Attila.

Well that's bad news. I think one of the climatic issues is that aberrant temperatures/rainfall are conducive to the growth of pathogens. That's the issue with coffee in Latin America now.

I'm not sure what your salinity issue is about....guessing it's proximity to the ocean combined with over-drawing water from the ground?
