Ripen tomatoes at the end of
the growing season
At the end of the growing season, it is a challenge to ripen tomatoes. This can lead to crop loss. Restrain accelerates the ripening process of tomatoes on the plant, allowing the last tomatoes of the season to ripen naturally.
In warmer southern climates, tomato plants become exhausted during summer. By administering ethylene to plants at night, yields can be improved.

Intro for tomato growers
Last 3-4 weeks of the growing season
The treatment starts during the last three to four weeks of the growing season. A Restrain generator is placed inside the greenhouse.
Disperses ethylene gas in the greenhouse
The generator converts ethanol into ethylene gas. The generator disperses a low concentration of ethylene gas through the greenhouse. The dynamic ethylene gas weighs about the same as air.
Ripen naturally on the plant
The ethylene allows tomatoes to ripen naturally on the plant, but faster, while retaining flavour and shelf life.

A generator is placed inside the greenhouse. This ripening machine produces a low concentration of natural ethylene gas for the last three weeks of the growing season. All Tomatoes ripened uniformly.
At the same time, sensor control and maintain a stable ethylene concentration within a ripening environment.
Both generator and sensor work together in ripening the last four to five trusses of tomatoes on the plant, resulting in a continuous harvest with no production peaks.
