The evaporative power of air and the possibilities of controlling its action in greenhouses


, : The evaporative power of air and the possibilities of controlling its action in greenhouses. Acta Horticulturae (43(1)): 71-78

Different ventilation techniques were studied in glazed greenhouses and plastic tunnels, with the object of preventing high rates of evapotranspiration. Ridge ventilation is favoured; side ventilation caused excessive moisture loss.

Using liquid nitrogen as a cooling agent resulted in temperatures lower than those outside under climatic conditions with high atmospheric humidity, without raising the RH in the greenhouse. The maximum economic effectiveness was achieved by the a...
