ser ous consideration by many fruit jrowef a who have control of their rrigation It may not always possible to prevent frost njury to orchards thru the use of rrigating but this method lias lefinitely saved the crops on certain orchards in districts where practi slly all fruit on adjoining orchards was lost by frost during the past In the use of irrigation water there ire points to be considered laving the soil wet in the orchard on the night of the frost is of But best of all is to have the water n the or in in addi ion to having the surface compact ind wet at the very time when reezing temperatures Now let us consider the different actors which aid in frost A solid compact soil will allow heat the earth to radiate more f ree y than a soil surface which is loose nd A loose soil mulch acts as a blanket and holds the heat of the arth Wet soil appears to be cold daring he because more heat is re quired to raise the temperature than vould be required of dry Con equentljr more heat is being stored ip during the day in wet soil and will be given off again during frosty Dry soil warms up quickly during the but stores ip very little heat to be given off at night and to aid in frost Wet standing or run ning will also create a mist or fog on a cold This fog pre vents the rapid escape of heat from earth into the clear air above Suppose it turns colder and there may bo a slight freezing within the Jant the extent of actual fruit njury then depends upon conditions n the morning at A right morning sun shining on dry frosted fruit or leaves usually re sults in severe frost On the and holds the rising heat more or less among the This is clearly il lustrated by the fact that we seldom have frosty spring nights wtien it is that we have cre ated a fog by irrigating on a frosty Before the vapor can be converted into or a certain amount of heat must be giv en off into the surrounding atmos before tho dew on the leaves and fruit can bechanged to or still more heat must be given These different process es delay the actual freezing of the plant cells in the leaves or you have created or even white frost on the the con ditions are more Before the fruit can be overheated by the bright morning sun the frost must be Then again the water must be dried off before tho fruit gets By this time the plant which might have been partly will have the frost slowly drawn out and will be restored to normal summing we can say that wet running water from deep well pumps and the cre ation of a fog are all important fac tors in frost In ad dition to anything in the way of protecting the trees against the bright morning sun is of consider able This may be birbt about by burning a little wet straw at sunrise to produce a smoke In watching the temperature rec wo find it possible to Yaise the temperature more than two de grees by but this does not seem to be absolutely since the presence of water appar ently prevents frost injury even if the temperature drops considerably below the freezing This is no longer a but very practical to a limited Your father was a college wasnt he but we never mention His college had a horrible football SMEN rich by the slow
