The horticulture official of the city also said: “This year, due to the cold weather, the harvest time of pistachios was later than last year and the climatic conditions were such that the need for tree cooling in all cultivars was adequately met, which reduces pest damage and increased population.”
Insects have become useful on the surface of gardens.
Ms. Sorayai added: “This year, due to the prevalence of the corona virus, the training required by gardeners is mostly done online and via SMS, and when necessary, with small gatherings and with observance of hygienic points.”
