In tropical and subtropical areas, greenhouse cultivation is limited by the excess temperatures occurring most of the year due to high radiation levels entering the greenhouse. Under such situations, different cooling methods must be used together in order to maintain the desired temperatures. The most common cooling methods are natural ventilation and shading (generally whitening of the greenhouse cover). NIRreflecting plastic films are a good alternative to traditional shading techniques. Different types of materials are under development nowadays, but the experimental testing of ...
