US: Berries and cherries yield increased over 100% in retractable roof

The results are in from the first year of a trial at Michigan State University where Dr Greg Lang is researching the impact of retractable roof greenhouses and rain shelters on the yield and timing of sweet cherry production. Cherry yield increased by an average of 153% and fruit is harvested 10-14 days earlier.

Raspberry production increased over 100% in a retractable roof

To improve the profitability of raspberry production, Cravo began working with Dr Eric Hanson from Michigan State University. A small trial this year in the retractable X Frame has resulted in at least a 100% increase in yield compared to plants grown outside. This trial also led to strategies to increase plants per hectare and to make it easier to manage the spotted wing drosophila since the walls on the retractable roof can remain closed help prevent entry.
