Abstract:

The dynamic behaviour of the greenhouse micro-climate plays a major role in the productivity of a plant crop. Maintaining an optimum microclimate is a prerequisite for higher crop production. Unscientific manual monitoring and resultant faulty treatments lead to a suboptimal yield. To this effect, an experiment was conducted in 5 nos. of Gerbera greenhouses in which Agrithink’s Smart Micro-climate Monitoring and Control System (a patented system) was installed. Another 5 normally maintained Gerbera greenhouses of uniform dimensions and specifications were taken for comparative analysis. The study lasting a year revealed that all the plant characteristics, and the yields in the greenhouses equipped with Smart Micro-climate Monitoring and Control System (SMMCS), were significantly superior over normally maintained(NM) greenhouses. The sale of Gerbera from the first case with SMMCS also showed a highly significant return over the return from normally maintained greenhouses.
