Lower risk of spring frost
Last week, frosty temperatures and snowfall had many regions of Turkey firmly in their grip. Istanbul was particularly affected. In Manisa, however, it only snowed at higher altitudes, with night frost still reported in the valleys. The weather is expected to stay like this for a while, and at the moment the low temperatures do not pose a threat to the vines. Flowering has not yet started and a later start reduces the risk of the crop being noticeably damaged by spring frost. In addition, the plants should benefit from the rainfall.
