Frost Protection

In fruit growing and viticulture, frost damage can be prevented by producing a strong smoke over the affected area: this reduces the heat radiation from the earth's surface. Other methods of limiting frost damage include wrapping crops or spraying them with water. Large areas of water (possibly constructed) also provide protection from frost damage.

In orchards and vineyards, frost damage can be prevented by producing strong clouds of smoke that reduce the radiation of the soil and the lower layers of the atmosphere, or by anti-freeze sprinkling, in which the heat of crystallisation released protects the blossoms.

Water surfaces (lakes, ponds and ditches) also provide a certain degree of frost protection for surrounding areas. The effect is particularly noticeable in fruit-growing areas such as the Alte Land during flowering.
