Abstract

Since 1970 the Ministry of Agriculture has developed a broad program of study on hailstorms. In some cases, this study has included cloud seeding. In 1978 the application of Agl nuclei began in a part of the Spanish Levant. After five years, the results indicated reduction in crop damage caused by hail. the types of storms are described, an analysis on the behavior of seeded cloud masses is presented, and a comparison of seeded and unseeded storms is summarized.
