Results of the Frostbuster PDF Print E-mail

Test results of the Frostbuster in 2003.

The results that we show here are the results of tests, controlled by Dr. Tom Deckers of the PCF research centre in Gorsem (Belgium).

To get the most accurate results possible, Dr. Tom Deckers selected farms with identical fruit varieties in the treated and untreated orchards. The orchards had to be at the same height, they had to be of the same age, they had to be of the same variety, and finally be of the same owner. This to exclude any coincidences and to be sure that external factors such as the use of fertilizers would not influence the results. To ensure the Frostbuster was used correctly, all farmers also had already one year of experience with the Frostbuster.
