HUNGARIAN AGRICULTURE WILL SAVE TENS OF MILLIONS OF FORINTS YEARLY
As Index.hu notes, from the spring on, Hungary will subjugate hail. Weather will be manipulated a little, but it will be for everyone’s benefit of tens of billions of forints per year, at least the promise is so. Sounds like sci-fi? Testing had been going on in a factory in Southern Transdanubia for 25 years. In the May of 2018, the national system for restraining damage done by hailstone will be launched. Hungarian agriculture will save tens of millions of forints yearly with it, declared the competent Secretary of State last year.
In practice, this means that 984 generators will be installed around the country, which will evaporate silver-iodide into the air, preventing hail and the damage it causes. The chemical will fall with the rain and will merely be absorbed in the ground. It will cost 1.8 billion HUF plus one and a half billion on a yearly basis for upkeep.
