Economical Crop Protection Radiation Frost and Advective Freeze Control The Frost Dragon is inexpensive to run, consuming approximately 2.8 lbs. of propane per hour acre. Four to five hours of operation can be achieved on 400 lbs. of propane. One machine can cover up to 20 acres with the proper application pattern. It works in its own micro-climate. The temperature inside the area treated is independent from the outside temperature. The strategy is to start with a temperature 4 degrees or 5 degrees above the damaging temperature for the type of crop and maintain that temperature. The Frost Dragon not only protects against frost damage, it also increases the fruit setting by managing temperatures during blossoming. It can also help to avoid dew by raising the temperature above the "dew point" and reducing moisture. Frost Dragon utilizes a centrifugal fan with twin volutes, providing a warm air reach of 160 to 250 feet.
