Heat stress will negatively impact all crops affecting growth, development, and productivity. Heat will be on for the weekend with temperatures approaching 110 degrees is part of the SJV.
High temperature stress disrupts biochemical reactions fundamental to normal cell functioning and it primarily affects the photosynthetic functions of plants.
Crop Shield, Game Changer, and Cali-Kool represent breakthrough opportunities for solar protection. Crop Shield Game Changer covers plant surfaces with a protective coating – that refracts harmful infrared and ultraviolet radiation which can then significantly reduce losses from sunburn, bleaching and heat stress.
