Extending the summer harvesting period of carnations with the assistance of protective structures

Extending the summer harvesting period of carnations with the assistance of protective structures

Colture Protette 12(10): 45-51

Hot air was used to maintain the temperature above 2 degrees C in a single-span greenhouse with polyethylene film cladding. When Floratex Bianco 60 film sheeting was used as a false ceiling to reduce by a third the volume of air that required heating, there was a 55-60% saving in heating costs. Hot air ducting gave a further 15% saving only but increased carnation flower yields. The problems of the costs of installing the system and of extending and retracting the sheeting are discussed.
