Energy conservation and plant growth by using double plastic on glass greenhouses


, : Energy conservation and plant growth by using double plastic on glass greenhouses. Acta Horticulturae (76): 305-311

Covering glasshouses with 2 plastic sheets which were separated by 0.65 cm of air reduced fuel costs for heating by 65%, although the light entering the glasshouse was reduced by 18%. Tomato fruit numbers were unaffected by the reduction in light but size was reduced, so that yields fell by 0.36-0.86 kg/plant.

The phosphate regulatory mechanism in yeast, known as the PHO pathway, is regulated by inorganic phosphate to control the expression of genes involved in the acquisition of phosphate from the medium. This pathway is also reported to contribute to...

The response to both treatments was very variable, calving occurring 7-24 days after TMA treatmen...
