This is a completely new phenomenon affecting orchard crops. The dynamics are not yet well understood, although experts have their own idea. Everyone can see what is happening in Italy since the arrival of spring.

Professionals explain what is happening in crops. In practice, the born fruits shrink. Thus the fruits become “dwarfed” because it is their way of conserving water. Without the main source, the fruits do not grow and the high heat does not help.

Many nurserymen say that even though their trees have water, they don’t open their stomata to let air and oxygen in because otherwise the water vapor will come out. To conserve what little they have, they stop growing. The consequence is represented by very small fruits.

Some solutions are considered to remedy dwarfism. Plants are living beings and they adapt to difficulties. It is a kind of self-defense of fruit crops to conserve the little hydration they have. They close the growth factor even in the presence of the sun.
