Deciduous trees and wine vineyards are naturally resistant to winter frost. However, once spring comes around, when budding and flowering commence, they become vulnerable to frost when temperatures drop below zero. This, in turn, leads to poor yield quality and yield delays for both leaf/fruit and tree/vine in the short term.
Irrigation, primarily via sprinklers, has proven to be the most reliable and cost-effective method to reduce, or mitigate, frost. Successful implementation of irrigation systems can mean the difference between complete loss of crop and minimal damage.
