Tajikistan is really hot right now,
over 40 degrees C or 100 degrees F.
Met with two farming groups today. Gave
then hand saws and pruners. One fellow has
9 kids and is the MAIN PRUNER for most of
southern Tajikistan area and he pruners
most of the winter.
Watch out for powdery mildew, it is going
rampant with the warm weather. Reduce
overhead watering. Good aeration. Use
sodium bicarbonate or wettable sulfur. Being
this early can be devastating to the crops.
