Testing a strategy of growth and yield control in greenhouse cucumbers in a specialized vegetable-growing farm


, : Testing a strategy of growth and yield control in greenhouse cucumbers in a specialized vegetable-growing farm. Acta Horticulturae ( 260): 123-136

In 1988 the Wilhelm Wolff cooperative farm developed a strategy for the optimization of air temperatures in greenhouses based on a yield formation model. The optimal temperature was calculated for a fixed CO2 concentration of 800 p.p.m. without ventilation and for a concentration of 500 p.p.m. when the greenhouse was ventilated. Optimal temperatures were fixed for periods of 9 days to take into account the actual temperature and yield curves.

Xylitol is effective in preventing acute otitis media by inhibiting the growth of Streptococcus pneumoniae. To clarify this inhibition we used fructose, which is known to block similar growth inhibition observed in Streptococcus mutans. In additio...

We describe a robotic implementation of a model of the basal ganglia and demonstrate the capacity of this system to generate ad...
