Small differences in land elevation
sometimes cause a lot of difference
in fruit production in Ohio orchards.
In one area in the state, two or
chards at elevations of 1,100 feet
had very little frost damage in 15
years. A nearby orchard at 980
feet elevation produced only two
profitable crops in the 15 years.
