Steve Hammersmith, president of Shur Farms Frost Protection, a company specializing in managing cold air flows in orchards and vineyards, has written a book entitled “Cold Air Accumulation and the Grower’s Guide to Frost Protection.”

Hammersmith has many years of experience of managing frost on his family orchard and studied and apprenticed under Dr. Rafael Guarga, president of the University of Uruguay. The two collaborated on a new method of controlling cold airflows and draining cold air masses.

The new book, published by WestBow Press, discusses the causes of frost and methods growers can use to protect their crops.
The book is available in paperback and electronic versions from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
