Some interesting insights in 'In Greenhouses'
These pieces particularly caught my eye:
- 'Know your physics for better greenhouse control' — dehumidifying research, looking at reducing energy use in greenhouse climate control
- 'Many colours influence the shape and development of the plant' — looking at the use of different coloured LED lights in horticulture.
- 'In a couple of years, 75% of nurseries will have diffuse glass'
'Our greenhouse delivers top quality, higher production and lower energy costs' — looking at how a new greenhouse concept has helped French tomato grower achieve high productivity and lower energy costs.
'Horizontal light distribution is more important than vertical distribution' — comparing horizontal and vertical diffuse light distribution in a greenhouse.
