Less transpiration and good quality thanks to NIR-screen

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


    Materials or additives for greenhouse cover that reflect or absorb a part of the NIR radiation can decrease the cooling requirement for the greenhouse and increase water use efficiency of the crop. By reducing the ventilation requirement, it might even decrease emissions of carbon dioxide from greenhouses with CO2 fertilisation
