    Description

    As energy costs increase, resistance is strong to these costs becoming a larger proportion of production cost. Many options can be considered in this battle. This presentation deals only with altering thermostat settings during initial crop growth stages early in the season. Reducing energy requirements in greenhouse crop production while maintaining quality and on-time delivery is a challenge. Two concepts are discussed with respect to greenhouse heating set points: Q10 factors during seed germination and DIF during active growth.
