Title:
Evaluation of Citrus Front Protectant Materials
Author:
Butler, Marvin; Matheron, Mike
Issue Date:
Dec-1986
Publisher:
College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ)
Journal:
Citrus Report
Abstract:
With the high cost of maintaining and operating wind machines, growers are increasingly interested in alternative methods of freeze protection. Several possible frost protectant materials were applied to Valencia oranges at the Yuma Mesa Agricultural Center. Although temperatures reached the mid-to-upper 20s at the test site during the winters of 1984-1985 and 1985-1986, no frost damage occurred. As a result, it was impossible to evaluate the effectiveness of the materials.
