Frost research to refine management

Plain text source: 
Frost research to refine management.. National research is investigating: the influence of burning, raking, harvesting low and stubble retention on frost damage in cereals; frost responses to soil inversion by way of mouldboard ploughs and rotary spaders; the influence of crop canopy architecture on frost; and the role of grazing in delaying flowering and exposure to frost... Crop canopies have been manipulated in a variety of ways, including skip rows to create different bandwidths of crop canopies and various nitrogen and seeding rates to create different biomasses to evaluate their impact on the severity and duration of frost...
