Many plants can be damaged or killed by freezing temperatures, and by frost. This will vary with the type of plant and tissue exposed to low temperatures. The objective of any frost protection system is to keep the plant tissues above their critical temperature, for years growers and researchers have recognised the value of applying water to crops during periods when the temperature drops below 0°C (32°F)

Latent heat produced as the water freezes on the plant, changing phase from a liquid to a solid, using chemical energy that store in the bond that joint molecules of water.
