- ... A cultural practice for cooling cranberry plants and avoiding yield losses due to overheating is to turn on sprinkler irrigation for a few minutes when a critical temperature threshold is reached. The purpose of this study was to determine: (i) the critical leaf temperature to start irrigation for evaporative cooling in cranberry production, (ii) the combined effects of heat and water stress, and ...
