The AgroFrost Frostbuster has been used for years in fruit frost protection in Chile, the USA and Europe, and has won many awards.
This machine has revolutionised top and soft fruit and vine frost protection. It has been proven to increase the temperature in the orchard, tunnel or vineyard, preventing the awful effects frost can have on the fruit bud.
The machine works by burning gas to provide a heated air supply, which is then blown by a fan driven by the tractor across the orchard or into the end of a tunnel. By driving around the orchard to a pre-determined route, it is possible to protect an area of up to 8 hectares.
The AgroFrost Frostbuster has several advantages compared to other frost protection systems:
- You can protect your crops at sites where no water is available
- It can be used not only during radiation frost but also during wind frost
- Used to improve fruit setting
- It can also be used for drying fruit after rain to prevent splitting
