Greenhouse technology and management.

Book cover for Greenhouse technology and management.

Description

This book incorporates the experiences in mild-winter greenhouse production systems where the most successful solutions are those that integrate greenhouse design and environmental control with crop husbandry. The content is focused on plastic greenhouses for vegetable growing but includes cross references to glasshouses, high-tech environmental control methods and other cultivation systems when these are needed to fill some gaps and to justify the basic concepts. The major attention is on the principles and techniques of greenhouse technology and management. The book also deals with integrated production, crop physiology, soilless cultivation, irrigation and fertilization, plant protection, postharvest, economics, marketing and production strategies.
