Light-dependent control of day temperature for early tomato crops

, : Light-dependent control of day temperature for early tomato crops. Acta Horticulturae (51): 163-174

A light-dependent temperature control system capable of automatic adjustment of glasshouse temperatures with changing levels of solar radiation is briefly described. Results of experiments involving the use of various "modulating" and "steady" temperature regimes in the production of early tomato crops showed variable responses to light-dependent temperature control depending on the nature of the programme used.

Photosynthetic rates of tomato, eggplant and cucumber seedlings raised under different light and temperature conditions and in different seasons. The seedlings were raised either at high temperatures (25 deg C day, 15 deg night) or at low temperatures (18 deg day, 13 deg night); in both cases the light intensity was kept at 45 or 22 klx. Growth was slowest at the low temperature, especially...

For growing spring tomatoes under plastic the optimal night temperature is believed to be 14-16 deg C, and the optimal RH about 70%. Good lighting is required for pollen germination. Several trials were carried out in heated and unheated plastic g...

Studies on perennial plants are scarce and in grapevine almost nil. Because grapevines nor...
