Greenhouse cladding with double plastic film

, : Greenhouse cladding with double plastic film. Genio Rurale 50(2): 45-50

In a comparison of single and double films of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and polyvinylchloride (PVC) of different thicknesses over a 2-year period, yields of table tomatoes cultivar Precodor were generally higher with double films of PVC than double films of LDPE.

Photoselective plastic films with low transmission to far-red (FR) light (700-800 nm) are now available so that plants grown in greenhouses clad with such plastics exhibit reduced stem extension and, consequently, plant height. Here we compare the...

A new method was applied to determine the transmittance of IR radiation by greenhouse plastic cladding films. In particular, a weighted av. method was used to calculate transmittance in the long wave IR band. Several plastic films were tested and...
