Plant Physiology in Greenhouses

E. Heuvelink, T. Kierkels

Research output: Book/ReportBookProfessional

Abstract

Since 2004 Ep Heuvelink and Tijs Kierkels have been writing a continuing series of plant physiology articles for the Dutch horticultural journal Onder Glas and the international edition In Greenhouses. The book Plant Physiology in Greenhouses consists of 50 of their plant physiology articles. The book offers articles about fundamental research on plants, translated into possibilities for the day-to-day business in commercial greenhouses. Cultivation and cultivation techniques have changed a lot over the course of the past years. Now growers use one or sometimes more computers to control the climate as well as the watering and fertilisation of the crop. In advanced greenhouse horticulture the use of sensors, electronics and computers still increases. In recent years, the number of possible measurements has grown significantly. Measuring plant temperature instead of air temperature is one of the big leaps forward.
