HUMIDITY PROBES TO OPTIMISE WATER USAGE

HUMIDITY PROBES TO OPTIMISE WATER USAGE Monitoring in real time and continuously the variables of humidity, conductivity, temperature, nutrient concentration, etc. is of great help for correct irrigation management. One of the technological trends to improve the efficiency of water use (understood as the production obtained in a crop per volumen of water used) and…

CONTROLLING TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY BY HUMIDIFICATION

CONTROLLING TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY BY HUMIDIFICATION Of all the factors in greenhouse production, climate control is the most important. The development of crops in their different stafes of growth is conditioned by different climatic factors such as temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, CO2… On this occasion we are going to discuss humidification as a technique…

THE USE OF SCREENS IN GREENHOUSE HEMP CULTIVATION

THE USE OF SCREENS IN GREENHOUSE HEMP CULTIVATION Commercial hemp production generally occurs indoors and requires environmental control of humidity and lighting fot both vegetative growth and flowering stages of development. One of the most relevant variables for a good hemp production is the photoperiod, depending on the exposure of the plant to light, the yield…

CLIMATE CONTROL IN GREENHOUSES

CLIMATE CONTROL IN GREENHOUSES Climate control in a greenhouse has an enormous influence on crop development, product quality, production scheduling, disease prevention and, ultimately, on the of the agricultural facility. At this time of the year, the high temperatures and humidity inside the greenhouse affect the quality of the crops, so ventilation systems are essential…
