Réunion growers watch annular eclipse

Yesterday was the day of the annular solar eclipse. This unique moment is a rare treat, with only three more to occur this decade. Unlike a total eclipse, the moon is smaller than the sun when it passes by it, producing a ring effect.

Yesterday's eclipse was perfectly visible from the Island of Reunion and Madagascar. Local greenhouse consultants Jean Marc and Aurore Hoarau had the privilege to watch the eclipse and were so kind as to send us some pictures.

The consultants from Reunion Island advised growers on Reunion how to adapt their climate strategies for the eclipse. The eclipse had an influence on the photosynthesis as there was less daylight and the temperatures were lower than usual. Therefore, growers were advised to adjust their irrigation strategies, and of course they were told to enjoy this spectacular moment.
