Protection ofcrops from cold injury and frost

A key factor in protection of crops from cold injury is stable air temperature and snow covers throughout the winter, ttaws, resulting in packing or disappearing snow cover, worsen dormancy conditions and reduce or destroy the protective properties of snow cover, tte prevention of crop damage by frost can be controlled by breaking up the inversion that accompanies intense night time radiation, ttis may be achieved by heating the air by the use of oil burners which are strategically located throughout the agricultural farm.

Other methods of frost protection include sprinkling the crops with water, brushing (putting a protective cover of craft paper over plant) and the use of shel-terbelts (windbreaks).
