Effects of the evaporative cooling system in greenhouses used for roses and carnations

Acta Horticulturae (43(1)): 113-123
Effects of the evaporative cooling system in greenhouses used for roses and carnations
Roses (cv. Super Star on R. indica major and R. canina) and carnations (cv. Super Cardinal) were grown in a glasshouse (A), in a plastic house (B) provided with a cooling system, and in an uncooled plastic house (C). Cooling was provided by humidifying pads, water sprayers (1.5 l/min/m2) and fans, changing the air volume of the houses 60-65 times/h. The cooling system reduced the temperature by 3-7 deg C in different parts of the house.
