In many parts of the world, we are heading towards summer and the temperature outside is rising. How can you ensure that the crop remains stress-free? As the temperature rises, so does the level of radiation. Radiation is the driving force behind photosynthesis (i.e. assimilate production), when it is used optimally. To keep the plant in balance, it is important to keep the stomata open. Therefore, the relative humidity should not drop drastically. This can be achieved, for instance, by using a misting system. Shading screens and decrease the greenhouse temperature can also be a solution to keep your crop stress-free in hotter conditions. Curious how to do this effectively? The experts will tell you all about it in this online course.
