PAS 1:

"During cold weather conditions, there is a high possibility that many crops or planted fields will be damaged due to frost, especially during cloudless cold nights. As it is well known the soil stores energy gained from the sun during the day light time. During cloudless cold nights the soil starts to loss this stored energy, and the soil surface temperature starts to drop less than the ambient temperature. When the soil surface temperature becomes around 0 °C the planted corps starts to freeze. This frost problem can highly damage the crops, or affect the crops growth process which leads to great financial losses for the agriculture sector. [Mohammad Abdel Kareem Jaradat, Moh’d A.
