A five-year demonstration project was conducted to determine benefits and identify harmful effects of using waste heat in condenser cooling water (90F-110F) for agricultural purposes. Initial phases of the demonstration emphasized the use and evaluation of warm water for spring frost protection, irrigation, and plant cooling during summer. Various row crops and fruit and nut trees were included in the evaluation. Undersoil heating was demonstrated on a 1.2 acre soil plot. Conclusions indicate that the greatest potential benefit of waste heat use in agriculture is in the area of greenhouse soil heating.
