May was characterized by instability and a lot of rain, a large quantity of water which accumulated with the amount that fell in winter, but the temperature wasn’t very high. Despite the abundant water, the plants felt little humidity. Morning dew was never seen, so, fortunately, attacks from pathogenic mushrooms never happened. Blossoming has begun and the vineyard of Briccolina, which is farther ahead in ripening, has almost finished, so the danger of downy mildew is almost behind us, but now the powdery mildew problem begins. In fact, when the ripening starts, so does the delicate period for this cursed pathogen. We are entering the most important period. June is crucial for proceeding with the rest of the year and we hope that a bit of real spring will arrive soon.
