The kind of field is the one which is called “highlands and pockets”. The presence of highlands brings the formation of micro weathers because of its orientation and difference in heights. It allows to say that it has limited probabilities to suffer hailstones and frosts.
In the case of frosts, given the fact that the land has a favorable slope of a 3 % if a frost occurs it will last a very short time. In the last 20 years, the average was 12,7 days with frosting each year. It is highly unprovable that late frosting happens.
It counts with accommodation for 200 persons that have access to the place temporally in the harvest time. It is a building of 450 square meters , everything built in masonry. (It can be seen in the photograph we call West Shelter)
There is a total of 7 buildings built in masonry with parabolic roofs of galvanized plates (It can be seen in one of the photographs of this page that we call Medium Shelter) that comprises a surface of 1.850 square meters and a building of offices of 150 square meters with tar paper. And finally, there is a country house of 450 square meters that is the permanent home of the engineer in charge of the technical part of the houses.
