Prospects for Gulf Region with closed greenhouse

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

    Abstract

    In countries such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, water is scarce as rainfall is minimal. Growers in the Gulf Region rely on groundwater for evaporative cooling and irrigation. This source of water is running out and growers are deciding to end production. The governments of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates want to create new possibilities for horticulture in the region by developing more sustainable and water-efficient techniques
