Abstract

The gas carbon dioxide (CO2) is a raw material for photosynthesis. From this, together with water, the plant makes sugars and other compounds. Therefore CO2 is for the plant what food is for man. There is often too little available in the greenhouse air for optimal production. Therefore it makes sense to dose with CO2. The optimum concentration varies over the day and is dependent on many factors.
