US (CA): Researchers get $5 million to combat downy mildew in lettuce

Keep your eye on this research on how to combat downy mildew. We serve a lot of customers who grow all types of greens across the US. Many of them have told us of issues with their crop, and I hope this research will provide important information to fight it. Leafy greens and micro greens grown in greenhouses are a huge part of today's produce economy.

Klerk’s greenhouse covers are copolymer blends of low density polyethylene and ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) that give greenhouse film high light transmission, and strong
puncture & tear strengths. Each greenhouse film manufacturer uses different combinations of polyethylene blends and film additives in their film production.

One layer of Klerks’ K50, four year, clear greenhouse film transmits 92% of the photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) that plants use for photosynthesis.

Light transmission through double layers of K50 amount to 85% of the PAR light spectrum.

Klerk’s greenhouse films are co-extruded 3 layer films. The layers are bonded together to form one film substrate. Each film layer is independent of each other allowing for improved film clarity and strength, and the addition heat retention & drip control properties.

There are different amounts of UV light intensity throughout North America. The same film will last longer in Canada than in South Florida because of the faster accumulation UV light and higher daytime temperatures. Typically Klerk’s K50 4 year film will survive 4 years in the majority of North American locations.

The primary enemies of greenhouse film are heat, ultra violet (UV) light, and contact with selected chemicals. The higher the heat and UV light exposure the faster greenhouse films degrade. Greenhouse films are UV protected with the addition of hindered light amine stabilizers (HALS). There are instances of chemicals that tie up the UV stabilizer and result in shortening film life.

To enhance greenhouse film life, growers should avoid spraying chemicals directly onto greenhouse film. Note that neighboring pesticide applications can be a potential source
of pesticide exposure.

The following chemicals area known to reduce film life: Banrot, Bromoxynil, Captan, Chloropicrin, Chlorine gas, chlorine bleach, Chlorpyrifos, Chlorothalonil, Copper Sulfate, Diazinon, Dienochlor, Dithiocarbmates, Fluorine, Fluvalinate, Formetanate, Hydrochloride, Iprodione, Mancozeb, Metham Sodium, Methomyl, Silver Thiosulfate, Sulfur, and Vinclozolin

Inflating double layer roofs with outside air will reduce the amount of water condensing between film layers and eliminate exposure of inside film layers to pesticides used in the
greenhouse. The use of air deflectors, attached to inflation fans, will lessen the chance of film damage associated with high air volumes striking the film opposite the air inflation kit.

Contact with PVC pipe will quickly degrade greenhouse film and voids the film’s warranty.

The orientation of the greenhouse is typically north-south. A lot of emphasis internationally is placed on orientation to maximise light interception in the greenhouse. This is not such an issue in Australia because our light levels are much higher.
