Advisory For Farmers

In case of heavy snowfall, shake the trees to remove snow immediately from the branches and crotches. Provide proper support to the limbs/plants which are not strong enough to withstand the load of snow. To avoid tilting of fruit trees, reduce the canopy load by pruning and provide support.

If the trees get partially uprooted, slowly pull back the trees to the original position after heavy pruning and provide proper support/staking to the main trunk to prevent further fall/movement. If the top portion of the tree breaks, slightly cut the damaged branch 2-3 inches below the broken point and apply Bordeaux/ Chaubatia paste on the cut surface.

If the main trunk splits into two or three parts or if the scaffold branch breaks and bark is still intact, after heavy pruning, bring the branch to the original position by tying with a rope and/or bolting or using nails. Ensure that the union remains tight and apply Bordeaux/ Chaubatia paste on the cut surface. If roots become exposed/naked, immediately cover the roots with soil to avoid further damage.
