Spring is more than a season of the year, it is a new cycle that begins, everything blooms, regenerates and transforms.
What marks the arrival of Spring in our hemisphere is the March equinox, which translates into the return of light, milder temperatures, in short, the blossoming of an entire fauna and flora.
What causes this to happen?
In addition to the planet Earth revolving around itself, it also revolves around the Sun, the latter being located directly above the equator, and both hemispheres receive an almost equal amount of sunlight. In the northern hemisphere spring begins, resulting in more hours of daylight, with earlier sunrises and later sunsets.
How does it affect our agriculture?
The main effect of the March equinox on agriculture is the photoperiod, the length of hours of light from sunrise to sunset. It is important from a physiological point of view, being central in photosynthetic and morphological processes of a plant and establishing different activities in insects and predatory arachnids.
Do you know what the Pink Moon or the Easter Moon is?
It is the first full moon after the March equinox, the designations of this moon may vary according to different religions, cultures and geography.
In religious terms, this is called the Easter Moon, from which the date of this day is calculated as the first Sunday after the first full moon of Spring.
The Pink Moon was nicknamed by the Native Americans because it coincided with the flowering season of a plant known as Phlox subulata, which covers the fields in pink flowers.
