Frost Protection in UK with Alistair Nesbitt
This show was published 19 February 2017
Frost is the single biggest threat to the UK wine trade, causing regular losses of production and occasionally complete loss of fruit. But frost can be managed and in regions where it is common it can be worth investing heavily in equipment. However there are a range of measures, some simple and cheap to very expensive that can be employed to mitigate and manage frost.
We talk with leading Viti climatologist Alistair Nesbitt about what the different types of frosts are and the best way to manage them in the vineyard.
