In the cultivation of greenhouse chrysanthemums, the main heating system is often positioned overhead. Under unfavourable conditions, this can lead to unacceptable vertical temperature differences or high relative humidity (RH) in the crop and ultimately to increased risk of diseases. Moreover, the overhead heating pipes will result in higher energy loss compared to a heating system at a lower position. Heating circuits at different heights, controlled independently of each other, can help to… CONTINUE READING
