Resum
The use of phase change materials (PCMs) in encapsulated pebbles or pellets as freeze protection method for low-stature plants/crops is proposed and discussed at the conceptual level. Utilizing a simplified geometrical model, it is shown that, for practical applications, small encapsulated-PCM pebbles/pellets of 1-cm sized could provide the necessary heat to prevent the freezing during typical freezing time. Taking into account the balance between the loss of energy on a typical frost night and ...
