Under the snow bread, under the rain hunger
"Under the snow bread, under the rain hunger"
...and we know that under old farmers proverbs there is always much wisdom.

The snow forms an important water reserve, melting slowly it hydrates the wheat without stagnation. Differently, too much rain will not be held or be absorbed completely by the soil or the cultivation.

Since the snow is formed by water and air, it becomes like a thermal isolation, detaining the heat from the soil and protecting the cultivations from freezing. In this way it contributes in slowing the vegetative growth of the plants, that in the meantime, continues to develop their root system.

Besides this, the snow represents a prime source of manufacturing. The crystals when falling, capture the azote in the air bringing it to the ground, where it becomes indispensable for the growing and blooming of the plant.
The positive effect of the snow also has an outcome of mechanical rolling. If the winter ice makes the soil soft and puffy, the abundant snow will compact it again making the different layers adhere to the cultivation.

We don't know in the end if the emotion that the snow brings is somehow measurable, but we assure you that the serenity that the white mantle on our wheat transmits, does good to us too.
