1.9 Frosts – date and severity

Frost can seriously affect bud burst, flowering and harvest patterns, so it’s important to record the date and severity of any frosts. At the very least it provides context when looking back on data as a frost is likely to have affected other vineyard events.

With Sectormentor you can record frost severity for each block, and for any unusual or particularly bad effects it’s a good idea to take a photo as a visual record of that issue.
