New research aims to battle freezing crops

FRESNO, Calif.

Researchers at Washington State University have launched a new three-year study to find a way to make orchards more frost resistant. The goal of the nearly $300-thousand study is to reduce damage during extreme weather conditions.

Right now farmers use heaters or wind machines to protect their crops. Researchers are hoping to develop a better way to save fruits and veggies.
