Dews

Dews are small droplets of water mainly found on the soft grass blades during mornings.

When the air above cold ground comes in contact with it, the air condenses and a thin layer of dew forms upon the surfaces.

Due to dew cover on everything, it gives a shiny appearance to the surrounding, called hoar.

Some people harvest these droplets as they are the source of pure water. To harvest these dews, ancient people of Ukraine used large piles of stones and the people of England used dews ponds.

These dews are beneficial to the ecosystem too. They prevent the plants from drought up to a little extent by reducing the rate of transpiration and by reducing the heat stress. These dews can be directly absorbed by the plants, especially in the desert areas.

I hope you liked the post.

Have a great day ahead.
