Foam Saves Crop From Frost
Here's a new way to protect high value crops from frost. The Kennco Frost-Off nozzle generates 600 plus gallons of foam per minute to cover plants before a frost or freeze. The foam keeps the plants warm by shielding them from the outside air, while keeping warmer air from the plants and the soil in.
According to the company, plants stay 10 to 30 degrees warmer than the air outside. The foam protects for up to 36 hours. The foam is tacky enough that it "sets" within an hour to resist winds of up to 12 mph. The all natural "Jack Frost" chemical costs 5 to 7 cents per cubic foot of coverage.
