For the past thirty years, ground seeding has been widely used for hail prevention, within various countries and under many conditions. Up to the present day, no really positive results are emerging at any place in the world concerning the efficiency of this seeding technique. For many scientists, "Grossversuch III" experiment (1957-1963), "Mendoza" experiment (1959-1964) are always in mind when negative tests are recalled.
