Netherlands: Optimal greenhouse design for Taiwanese vegetable production
The results were then applied to an economic model, comparing the viability of several designs. The resulting design has proven itself in the Taiwanese climate, characterized by high temperatures and humidity.
The major characteristics of the proposed design are a naturally ventilated nursery, with large windows (0.5m2 per m2). To prevent whiteflies from entering the windows have to be sealed with special nets. The hazed overarching foil must be hazed but still transparent to IR-radiation.
