The present publication is divided into two volumes, which concentrates on plant production grown in plastic greenhouse conditions, covers growing techniques and up-to-date technologies and management. Volume 1 covers the computational fluid dynamics, climate control and modelling, covering materials, crop modelling, energy and environmental impacts. Volume 2 focuses on equipment, robotics and automation, fertigation, water and growing medium management, greenhouse management and product quality, greenhouse systems and design, light use in greenhouses, plant protection, semi protected cultivation systems, and sustainable production. This publication would serve as a valuable book for students, teachers, researchers, extension workers, agriculturists, technocrats as well as those who are engaged in commercial exploration of greenhouses.
