    Really depends on the climate; warm days, cool nights and a low enough humidity to allow the dew to condense on the net above the fields, with the water actually coming up as vapor from the warmer soil below. It's got to reach a dew point below the ambient termperature. Anyone who's ever lived somewhere they use evaporative coolers is familiar with the concept.

    It would be daily, because if it's not knocked off, it'll just evaporate in the sun.

    There are fog and dew harvesting techniques for community water supplies in use in desert regions like this, too https://news.climate.columbia.edu/20...from-thin-air/ and in Moroocco https://reachalliance.org/wp-content...tudy-Final.pdf

    It's also used by plants and animals in really arid reagions like the Namib desert https://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.j...=NSF&from=news
