Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9812912A1] A system is described for protecting plants cultivated in a plot of soil from microorganism and from infesting insects and for facilitating the growth and fructification of said plants without requiring the use of pesticides, fertilizers and/or other chemical products. This protection system is based on the combined effects of electrical fields created by means of electrodes (1) driven into the soil (2) along the perimeter of the plot, of electrodes (4, 5) buried at regular intervals in the soil (2), and of electrodes (6) located at a preset height above the soil (2); a voltage supply device (7) maintains preset differences of potential between the said electrodes (1).
