Manipulation of light for the management of foliar pathogens of greenhouse crops - the story of the establishment of a new discipline


, : Manipulation of light for the management of foliar pathogens of greenhouse crops - the story of the establishment of a new discipline. 14th International congress on plastics in agriculture, Tel Aviv, Israel, March 1997: 269-281

Spectrally-modified polyethylene (PE) sheets with various blue/ultra violet B (B/UV-B) ratios of transmitted light were formulated by incorporation of various dosages of UV-B absorbing material and blue pigments. The films were produced by Ginegar Plastics Co, Israel, and have been investigated at Newe Ya'ar, as to their effects on the epidemiology of gray mould and downy mildew.
