The Science Behind Retractable Roof Production System
The following series of educational videos will give you a detailed explanation for how automatic retractable roof cooling houses, greenhouses, field and orchard covers will improve how your grow, expand when you can grow and can change where you can grow.
By investing just over one hour of your time to watch these videos, you will quickly learn how we integrate the science of the weather, the impact of a roof covering, nature and plant physiology to simply grow in ways that you never thought was possible.
It is highly recommended that you watch these videos sequentially to ensure a full understanding of the information presented.
Introduction to the Retractable Roof Production System
1. Plant Temperature
(8:08) Why leaf, fruit and soil temperatures are often significantly different than air temperatures in the direct sun, and how a roof covering alters plant temperatures.
2. Water Loss or Transpiration
(5:40) How the rate of water loss from plants changes when plants are outside in direct sun compared to when plants are in a protected environment.
3. Hydration, Dehydration or Water Stress
(14:15) How plants respond based on whether they are experiencing low water stress, optimal water stress or severe water stress.
