WUR’s new book on greenhouse hort. tech.

How to make 'optimal' choices about technology, for instance when it comes to shoot and root environment or vertical farming? 'Greenhouse horticulture' - written by Cecilia Stanghellini, Bert Van 't Ooster and Ep Heuvelink (WUR) - provides an integrated approach to crop growth and development and the technical aspects of greenhouse cultivation and climate management.

With the ability to modify the environment comes the need for growers to strike a balance between the costs and benefits of technology. 'Greenhouse horticulture' combines an analysis of the relationship between crop production and ambient climate with an explanation of the processes that determine the climate in a protected environment.

'Greenhouse horticulture' is an easy-to-read textbook for all those interested in protected cultivation, from university students and teachers to professional advisers in the field and managers of horticultural companies. The processes addressed in this book, like crop growth, energy balance and mass exchange, apply to any kind of greenhouse. Therefore, in spite of the word 'technology', this is not a book about high-tech greenhouses only.
