The main aim of agriculture is to obtain high quality and healthy products from the unit area by using technology which considers contemporary and sustainability. Climate is the main factor for quality and yield. The number of automatic climate stations used by the public and private sector for early warning purposes has reached to 1000 and the hourly rainfall, temperature, leaf wetness, soil moisture, soil temperature, solar radiation, wind speed values are measured in these climate stations. With this data computers are make a estimation for frost, disease, etc. and send the warning notes to the person's mobile phone. In this regard, the necessary precautions for frost are taken immediately, the problem of plant harms and diseases can be used at the right time and at the right dosage without the problem growing too much. Thus, both labor and economic savings are achieved. In this study carried out in Antalya and Burdur Basins risk dates of frost have been determined. The days when frost formation is expected are determined at different probability levels by different geostatistical methods by using daily minimum temperature of climate stations values in spring and autumn. Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW) and Radial Basic Functions (RBF) methods gave proper results. The frost risk maps for the IDW method for 80%, 50%, 20% probability levels in spring and autumn are given with the digital terrain model of the basins.
