At this time of year in which we live, we do not imagine that our crops suffer as a result of the terrible frosts. It is for this reason that from Defeder we want to warn and prevent the serious consequences that a frost may have for our land in the coming autumn and winter.
We understand that a frost occurs at the moment when the temperature in the meteorological shelter is zero degrees Celsius. Both meteorologists and climatologists came to this convention. Sometimes the ground temperature can be three or four degrees lower than that taken in the weather shelter. When we want to define a frost in an agricultural context is when the nuances begin. Well, there are vegetables that can suffer low temperatures without reaching zero degrees. Therefore, we cannot rely on certain temperatures to define a frost in the agricultural field. This aspect worries the farmer due to the potential for socioeconomic losses that they generate.
From Defeder we recommend the use of anti-frost candles. It is a simple frost prevention system especially focused on short frosts such as evaporation frosts. As we have mentioned previously, its use is simple, the candle is lit with a wick and gives off heat for 8-12 hours, being able to cover it to use at different times until all the paraffin is consumed. From Defeder we can advise you on how to use it, get in touch with us and we will advise you.
Anticipate frost and protect your crop with Defeder. We are happy to help you and provide you with the best shield against frost.
