A comparison of winter vs. overwintered hoop house production
Spring is upon us in Michigan and we have emerged from the Persephone Period, which is the time of year when days are shorter than ten hours (day length calculator). As the days get longer, plant growth rates increase in response to boosted photosynthetic activity and warmth. As growers head to their hoop houses to harvest and seed, they may encounter crops at varying stages of production. In this article, we will discuss the difference between winter and overwintered production of cold season hoop house crops.
