Are there any practical tests done to precipitate fog artificially with fog-seeding as a potential water source in arid and semi-arid areas?

Fog-water collection with Large Fog Collectors is a proven method of water harvesting system in arid and semi-arid coastal areas but is there any practical test being made to precipitate fog artificially with fog-seeding at a larger scale as a potential source of water?

Hello Mussie,
Merv Byron in Alberta has developped a technology to precipitate clouds:

Dear Mr. Andrew Kazantsev,

Interesting! I foresee the practicality of your innovation did you undertake any practical field test if yes what was the average fog-water harvested (L/m2)?

No idea at present.

in rural Kenya this is being spearheaded by one of the water expert in the country Prof Bancy Mati. this was started in 2013. view the links below for more information

There has been a pilot project in the USA, I am not sure at this point how far it has progressed.

Thanks Phillup Love,

If you have some specific information regarding the pilot project please forward it like the place or the institution that undertook the work in order to further google about it.

Mussie, I'm not entirely sure to be honest. Does anyone else have any input on this? I think it would be a fantastic speaking opportunity at The Flood Expo though...
