Spotlight on the Eighth Grade, Southeast Regional First Place Team: Strawberry Alliance
The team found that a foam blanket is a non-toxic and safe method to use on crops because the foam acts as a blanket that protects plants when the weather gets colder. The team used their findings to create informational fliers for the agriculture community and Southwest Florida Water Management District. These fliers describe how insulating foam can be used to protect low lying crops and save 60 to 70 gallons of water per minute.
