A prototype of a closed greenhouse has been constructed in the semi-arid region of El Ejido in Almería, Spain. It is a plastic greenhouse which minimizes the use of water and energy. This work presents the agronomical evaluation of the system during the first three years of operation, when several cycles of cropping have been performed in different seasons, all of them in a closed water cycle with the recovery of evapotranspiration and drainage, and with an enhanced concentration of CO 2 in the air ...
