Anti-freeze products to apply to the plants


These protective products, aimed at lowering heat levels, are applied directly to the crops, but have even greater anti-freeze power and in any case are variable. These substances should lower the freezing point of the growing organs of the plant, or limit the formation of ice outside the organ. Experiments are ongoing, also with the use of specific bacteria.
