What is Greenhouse Automation?
Greenhouses are complex systems designed to simulate the optimum climate conditions for maximum plant output. Maximizing a plants output can be achieved by maximizing the photosynthesis process. Many parameters have to be controlled with tight margins to achieve this.
A key parameter for photosynthesis is transpiration. The main method for energy transfer in plants is through transpiration. Transpiration is the process of water transfer from the plant to the air. The Transpiration rate of a greenhouse is a function of three parameters:
Precise control of these three parameters can maximize the transpiration rate in the greenhouse, maximizing the photosynthesis process. This leads to healthier plants, greater output, and reduced growing times.
