France: Frost again in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

The frost has returned to the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, which is quite usual at this time of year.

But in the middle of the flowering period, the frost could cause significant damage in the orchards. In Valensole, near Manosque, the arborists are struggling to protect the harvest.

Since the arrival of the cold, many producers have been using nets and candles, but another method is also used: continuous watering, which covers the trees with a thin layer of ice and protects them from the cold.
