Field evaluations of two fogging systems designed and marketed for frost protection of citrus in California indicated that, under ideal conditions, some protection to the area under the fog could be obtained. However, the major limitations still remaining with use of fog for frost protection include: producing enough fog particles of an effective size, and holding the fog in the area to be protected.
