Title: METHOD FOR ELIMINATING PESTS AND MICROORGANISMS ON PLANTS BY THERMALLY TREATING THE PLANT
Abstract:
The method can be used in the agricultural sector for protecting plants and fruits against pests and microorganisms. The method is based on a high-temperature short-time treatment of plants, wherein a hot air stream is used as a heat medium with a temperature from 50 to 150⁰C, humidity from 0.01 to 0.15, outlet stream velocity from 3 to 8 m/sec, and duration of exposure from 1 to 3 sec per crown, leaves and fruit of a plant. The high-temperature short-time treatment does not damage the plant, but immediately eliminates pests and microorganisms.
