You may be wondering how we get our crops to ripen as we descend into the cold winter months with less natural light through shorter days and colder nights. Here at R&L Holt, we won’t let that stop us! Here are the two ways that we keep our crops ripe in the coldest conditions…
- Keep your crop healthy
A healthy crop is crucial to maintaining its ripeness as a healthy crop produces the right nutrients to ensure the plant stays healthy.
- Put heating relative to light level
This allows the plant to ripen in accordance with the weather. On a darker, more dull day, we won’t emit as much heat compared to a lighter day where we add more heat to progress the ripening.
