    Abstract

    In semi-closed greenhouses, vertical temperature gradients along the canopy are induced when cooled air is blown into the greenhouse below the canopy. Vertical temperature gradient has no effect on dry matter production and partitioning to the fruits. Vertical temperature gradient has a positive effect on individual fresh fruit weight.
