heat unit

Term used to describe what has been traditionally called a growing degree-day.

Also used to describe the result of using different formulas for calculating growing degree-days. This term is often used to avoid the confusion of the term "growing degree-day" wherein more than one "day" can be accumulated within a 24-h period due to differences in plant type.
