Testing a wind machine as a method of protecting against flower frost in cultivated wild blueberries
The objective of this project is to measure the performance of a portable wind machine under different weather conditions in commercial cultivated wild blueberries crops.
Measure the performance of a wind machine under different weather conditions in terms of:
