Sustainable greenhouse production in mediterranean climate: a case study in Italy



Sustainable greenhouse production in mediterranean climate: a case study in Italy



Medit 6(4): 48-53



Greenhouse production has spread widely both in the Mediterranean area and in Italy in the last decade thanks to the introduction of suitable plastic materials. After a short review of the present situation of the Italian greenhouse sector, problems connected with the sustainability of this activity, especially aspects of technical construction and environmental effects, are discussed and technical innovations for the Italian greenhouse sector are proposed.
