The objectives of this study were to analyse and develop an original methodology applied to the greenhouse controls, in particular for fertigation (control of humidity and electroconductivity inside slab, drainage ratio) and climatic management (control of the main climatic parameters like air humidity and temperature). Predictive commands are used for these controls; they offer good compromises between performances and costs for climatic control and more generally, they are well adapted to… Expand
