If your crops are your livelihood, and damage to them could mean the loss of your income for the year, The HeliTeam’s experienced aerial frost protection crews have your back. We are available for both contractual frost protection coverage, as well as one-time frost protection needs.
We can help save crops from economic disaster during frost conditions by flying slowly over the crop. During cold and still conditions, the downdraft from the helicopter causes the slightly warmer air layered above to circulate amongst the crops, reducing the likelihood of frost damage. Helicopters are effective for frost protection for up to 50 acres per helicopter.
Another method of aerial frost prevention is using helicopters to hover over the crops during a freeze event. The rotors pull the air down from the inversion. Contact The HeliTeam to discuss your projected issues for agricultural frost protection, to determine if this approach would be effective for your situation or call us at (407) 545-5944.
