Horticulture greenhouse production in the Mediterranean area is based on the use simple low-cost structures with a very limited climate control. During the autumn-spring cycle, low temperatures reduce yield and quality of the different crops. Heating systems allow an increase of both, but the fuel consumption makes difficult its justification, thus it is necessary to evaluate them for local climate conditions. The goal of this work was to study the productivity of an eggplant crop in three multispan type greenhouses under three heating treatments, which levels ...
