    Abstract

    Climate control computers in greenhouses control heating and ventilation, supply water, dilute and dispense nutrients and integrate models into an optimally controlled system. This paper describes how information technology, as in use in other sectors of industry, applies to greenhouse control. In other fields of industrial automation, the introduction of WINDOWS and OS2 gave way to the use of a whole new generation of hardware and software tools: fieldbus systems, a real time on-line database, computer aided program engineering and object oriented programming. The introduction of these modern concepts in horticulture adds extra power to climate control in greenhouses.
