At last, we waited 6 long years for the results of two greenhouses side by side. One covered in 6-mil polyethylene and the other covered in SolaWrap Greenhouse film.
How did two different Greenhouse Plastic Coverings influence crop production? How would they compare WITHOUT any electricity?
Partnered with Colby Sawyers Environmental Studies Department and did controlled scientific experiments
2015- 4% more tomatoes in the SolaWrap greenhouse
2016- 30% more tomatoes in the SolaWrap greenhouse
2018- 25% more tomatoes in the SolaWrap greenhouse
In winter seedlings germinated better (2:44 min), survived better and were healthier in general.
They measured the temperature of both houses which they attribute to better success.
