Better frost predictions, for example, could save U.S. citrus growers millions of dollars each year. Citrus fruits such as oranges are very vulnerable to frost—they die in cold, wet weather. With more accurate frost forecasts, citrus farmers could plant when they know the new, tender seedlings wouldn’t be killed by frost. More accurate rain forecasts would enable farmers to plan timely irrigation schedules and avoid floods.
