This year AgroFrost have introduced the new ‘Revolution’ static frost protection machine to their portfolio and we will be showing this machine. The ‘Revolution’ is smaller, lighter and more economical than the previous ‘Frostguard’ range. A completely new and patented burner significantly redeuces gas consumption and increases the working time by several hours. Available with either top or lower air outlets to suit a range of crops from soft fruit to vineyards. An optional Auto Start System will make the machine fully automatic. We are also thrilled to have Patrik Stynen from AgroFrost joining us for the day; he is very knowledgeable about frost and the complexities so worth a chat!
