VertiFrost - Vertical Wind Machine for preventing frost damage in nightshade vegetables
This Innovation Experiment prepares an experiment that will design, build, test and evaluate a small-scale Vertical Wind Machine for potato crops and other nightshade vegetables that are susceptible to frost. It is important to investigate not only the replacement of the cold air layer with warmer but also the effect of leaf vibration against frost. The results will verify the efficiency of the Vertical Wind Machines. Preliminary experiments, as well as technical & financial feasibility, will take place within this PREPARE project.
