Control of the greenhouse microclimate during the summer is an important challenge in warm climate areas. Different cooling systems allow the limitation of high temperatures and/or low relative humidity levels inside the greenhouse. In the present work the microclimate conditions in three greenhouses with the same pepper crop and three different cooling systems were determined: mechanical ventilation; fog system and natural ventilation and plastic whitening with natural ventilation.
