A wind machine is ready for duty at a navel orange grove in eastern Fresno County, Calif. Two nights of a hard freeze are forecast for the San Joaquin Valley beginning Jan. 12. The wind machine, one of dozens in the valley, circulates the warmer air produced by irrigation water. California Citrus Mutual reported Jan. 10 that 75% of the navel orange crop was still on the trees, as was 72% of the lemon crop.
