the effects of the moon on agriculture
The moon has always affected agriculture and particularly sowing.
crescent moon and waning moon
The moon’s changes visible from the earth are called moon phases and are observed in agriculture to determine planting and harvest periods.
The phases of the moon are divided into two periods, when the moon is waxing and when the moon is waning.
The phase of the crescent Moon occurs when the visible part of the Moon, illuminated by the sun, increases.
The waning Moon phase occurs when the part of the Moon illuminated by the sun, and thus visible from the earth, decreases.
These two phases converge in two different extreme situations. When the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun and the illuminated part is not visible, it is called a
(New Moon). When the illuminated part is fully visible from Earth, it is called a Full Moon, and from Earth the Moon is described as a Full Moon.
How to sow by looking at the moon
What moon do you sow under, waxing or waning?
For sowing with the moon, you need to know that vegetables fall into two categories:
- Those that develop the fruit underground
- Those who develop it above ground
Those that manifest fruit under the soil should be sown in the waning moon, while all others should be sown in the waxing moon.
sowing with the waning moon
The most common crops to be sown in the waning moon are as follows:
- Swiss chard
In addition to sowing seeds, during the waning moon you can: prune roses and shrubs,
pruning vines and trees of all species, harvesting chestnuts, harvesting grapes, separating bulbs and rhizomes, and even heads.
sowing with a crescent moon
The following products can be sown under a waxing moon:
- Bell bell pepper
- Flowering plants
However, exceptions are made for plants with head
such as lettuce, spinach and cabbage.
*Vegetables that if planted during the waning moon phase will flower less quickly.
Sowing according to the moon is important
To know when is the right time to sow
but more importantly to identify the time of best productivity of your plants.
