HEAT UNITS – WHAT ARE THEY? …AND WHY THEY ARE IMPORTANT FOR YOU!

The term ‘Heat Units’ is also sometimes called Grower Degree Days.  Understanding what these are will give you a much better understanding of why there are gluts and gaps in the supply of fruit and vegetables, and corresponding price changes, which can sometimes happen in a few days.

Heat Units are measured using a rather complex algorithm that is based on the overnight low temperature, cloud cover, daytime high temperatures and humidity.  The Heat Unit measurement is predicted daily in weather forecasts, and is just as important information for farmers in daily weather updates as any other factor (rain, wind, etc.)
