Resumen:
The purpose of this paper is to model and to value a temperaturederivative to hedge late frost risk in viticulture. Starting from historical data,we propose a continuous stochastic model to describe the minimum temperaturebehavior. We define an American binary option to hedge late frost risk, andpresent a numerical application to grape cultivation.
