Greenhouses create an optimal growing environment for crops through climate control and protection from harsh weather and pests. This research project assessed the current challenges that exist within the protected agriculture industry and developed a new greenhouse design accordingly. The work focused on a new method of greenhouse cooling, for use in warm climates. A strong emphasis was put on affordability, ease of access to technology, and water and energy efficiency. The result of this…
