At THE CLIMATE BOX we specialize in conducting Frost Risk and Control assessments at a Microclimatic level for Ag Investment Funds, producers, and orchard managers, being the only company in the world designing specific scientific tools to quantify frost risk. Furthermore, we evaluate other key climatic parameters that may affect the crops, such as Chill Hour Accumulation, and the possible effects of Climate Change in those variables. We are currently working in Europe, USA, and Latin America with over 30,000 has analyzed for a wide variety of high-value crops such as almonds, avocados, citrus, kiwi, peaches, cherries, apples, vineyards and many more, working for forestry as well.

On-site temperature measurements feed our proprietary computational fluid dynamics model, enabling actionable key decisions at a hyperlocal level to maximize benefits and productivity for investors and producers. Our team is integrated by professionals that accumulate +25 years of worldwide experience in the frost risk & frost protection fields, with an extensive technical, commercial, and academic background at a global level.
