    In bulk the green rock salt I was told has something to reduce clumping as well as works at lower temperatures.

    I have a hydraulic auger spreader so it chops it all up regardless.

    Cheapest.

    Spray with liquid calcium chloride.

    This is what the states, counties, etc. use.

    Keeping it dry is the cheapest.
