Greenhouse Technology for Controlled Environment
A current and invaluable source for agricultural scientists, researchers, vegetable growers and professional entrepreneurs enabling them to understand the fundamentals of greenhouse technology applicable to vegetable production, crop drying, poultry farms, space heating etc. Imparts systematic information about the historical background, importance and reviews work in a global perspective. It provides design, construction, instrumentation and error analysis in greenhouse. The basic tools like knowledge of solar energy, solar fraction and heat transfer has also been elaborated upon, as well as different heating / cooling concepts used to control a favorable environment condition inside greenhouses, including information on constituents of inside environment, root media, various crop production, thermal modeling, energy analysis and economic aspects of greenhouse technology.
