Spanish term or phrase: piso término
Hola de nuevo. Estoy leyendo un artículo sobre las flores y me cuesta traducir "piso término" en la siguiente oración:
"Colombia, con un piso término ideal para el cultivo de flores, posee cerca del 11% del mercado producto de sus más de 400 variedades de claveles, rosas y astromelias, de las que vende, sólo al mercado norteamericano, unos dos billones de tallos al año, de los cuales el 77% se despachan para la temporada de San Valentín, que se celebra el 14 de febrero."

¿Se refiere a la tierra en Colombia? Muchas gracias por su ayuda.
