Magic Sun believes that Better Farming is more than utilizing new growing techniques and technology. It involves our passion for making a difference with produce and contributing to an overall healthier food supply for consumers.
Our team of growers draws on its decades of experience in greenhouse growing to create an optimal environment to produce wholesome and safe food in the most sustainable way. Magic Sun’s greenhouses are strategically placed in high elevation regions that offer direct sunlight and mild temperatures at night to produce a perfect climate for growing outstanding tomatoes.
Integrated Pest Management
Magic Sun follows Integrated Pest Management (IPM) standards and proactive protocols to monitor greenhouse eco systems and introduce beneficial insects to prey on the bugs that damage crops. These practices virtually eliminate the need for harsh pesticides and create a sustainable environment that is less dependent on other applications to control undesirable insects.
Plants are fed by mixing nutrients into the greenhouses irrigation system. Tests are taken on return water to assess what was absorbed by the plants. The pre- and post-testing enables our growers to closely monitor and adjust nutrients to maximize the overall growing conditions and environment.
Magic Sun’s carefully selects high elevation growing regions for its greenhouses to offer stable conditions that avoid major swings in temperatures experienced in conventional growing. The ambient sun provides the majority of heat while supplemental warmth is provided by circulating hot water through the greenhouses. Cool nights also help with growing conditions to produce high-color varieties that make for great taste and visual appeal.
