Greenhouse I

The basic concepts of energy efficient greenhouses will be studied along with programmable control systems regulating temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, irrigation, fertilization and other variables. Various energy systems will be examined including biomass, cogeneration greenhouses and traditional natural gas systems. This course will be presented with two 2-hour blocks so that faculty can use the lecture room, greenhouse, field or laboratory as appropriate from week to week. Further experience will be gained in managing plant production in greenhouses.
