The crop has the highest production capacity and available radiation during this phase. Steering towards vegetative or generative crop development should take place depending on the crop's condition. The crop's age is now gradually becoming a more important factor and the quality of the harvested product needs more attention. A healthy and active crop will also function well when the weather changes or when there are extreme weather conditions.

The uptake of water and nutrition should meet the crop's needs. These needs may be very large under certain conditions and may vary widely between days and periods during this phase. To cope with such situations, the crop needs good root penetration into the substrate and an active root system. Good water and nutrition management combined with adjusted climate management (activating the crop) encourage root development so that the roots can take up enough water and nutrition for product quality and crop growth. The advice takes weather changes and seasonal influences into consideration.
