Water And Frost

From how many acres could I keep off a freeze of oranges with 1000

gallons per minute? The water is at 65 degrees.

The amount of water will prevent frost over as large an area as you can

cover with the water, so as to thoroughly wet the surface, but the

presence of water will only be effective through about four degrees of

temperature and only for a short time. If, then, the temperature should

fall below 27 degrees and should remain at that point for an hour or

two, it is doubtful if the water would save your fruit. Water is only of

limited value in the prevention of frost, and of no value at all when

the temperature falls too low.
