The effects of air vapour presure deficit (VPD) and radiation reducion by whitening on the transpiration rates of a grrenhouse sweet pepper crop (transplanted in July) under a semi-arid climate (Almería, South-Eastern Spain) were studied. Measurementes were carried out during ontogeny in three analogue multi-span curved greenhouses: (i) without air VPD control and no whitening ii) with a fog-system operating when air VPD was ...
