    Abstract

    greenhouses are the only feasible option for developing agriculture in many areas of the world. They are needed in cold countries in order to have produce during the winter and it is also extremely urgent in many marginal lands in Mediterranean and hot countries in the world where maximizing the use of resources and obtaining more crop per drop or per unit of energy is a must. But how can we do this in a sustainable way?
