In The Netherlands, since 2002, a number of (semi-)closed greenhouses was constructed. Climate conditions in these greenhouses were found to differ considerably from those in conventional greenhouses. Knowledge of the effects of these climate conditions on the crop was scarce. Therefore, in the research project “Crop management in conditioned greenhouses”, funded by the Dutch Commodity Board and the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food safety, the effects of the new climate conditions on the crop were investigated. In the accompanying scientific project “SynErgy: monitoring and control system, for conditioning of plants and greenhouses” (WP-066; May 2007 – May 2012), funded by TransForum, this knowledge is used to develop new concepts of climate control for optimal crop growth. In this report, the results and impact of this scientific project are described.
