Six mobile wind machines protect 30 hectares of pomegranate crops against frosts in Italy
On Tuesday 22 March 2022, six FrostFans wind machines were delivered to Masseria Fruttirossi, a southern Italian cultivation company that wants to save its pomegranates from the increasingly frequent night frosts in spring. Immediately after their delivery, a short demonstration of the machines also took place.
“We have plenty of irrigation possibilities; but we want to protect the crop”
Dutch pear grower Antoin Verwoerd can irrigate. That is to the envy of growers elsewhere in the country. Still, that did not stop him from investing in a FrostFans mobile wind machine. This device combats night frost. And Antion bought it mainly from a sustainability point of view.
