Modelling evaporative cooling in greenhouses under central Mexican conditions

Modelling evaporative cooling in greenhouses under central Mexican conditions

Communications in Agricultural and Applied Biological Sciences 69(2): 285-288

This study was conducted to investigate the technical feasibility of evaporative cooling under Central Mexican conditions. This study was carried out by means of simulations of different evaporative cooling methods (ECMs) coupled to a validated greenhouse model fed with local meteorological data during the warm season of the year.
