Low temperatures under 32 °F (0 °C) and freezing conditions present a great threat to crop growth and could result in partial or total losses if not handled appropriately.
Sprinkler irrigation can provide the highest level of protection when compared to a vast majority of currently available systems. It is also one of the most economical frost control alternatives.
A sprinkler system’s energy consumption is considerably less than what growers normally would spend with heaters and other electrical equipment. The labor requirements are less when compared to these other methods and it is relatively non-polluting.
