In a series entitled "Energy-Efficient Annuals," published in Greenhouse Grower, the MSU team provided crop-specific information in response to growing temperatures.

"What we learned from our research, reported in the "Energy-Efficient Annuals" series, is that it is not possible to make blanket statements about growing temperatures because answers depend on the crop, time of year, greenhouse location and characteristics, desired plant quality, etc," Runkle says. "In other words, it's very situational."

With this knowledge, Dr. Runkle was kind enough to provide a few key points in response to our questions about ways to grow crops cooler.
