As an example the soil solarization: Soil solarization is a nonchemical method for controlling soilborne pests using high temperatures produced by capturing radiant energy from the sun.

 

Parrita, Costa Rica Central Pacific Coast:  Surrounded by the Pacific coast has excellent soils rich in nutrients and minerals that provide a unique sweetness to melons and watermelons that are harvested in the summer from mid-January to mid-April.
