USING WASTE HEAT FOR VEGETABLE GROWING IN THE OPEN, UNDER PLASTICS, AND IN GLASS-HOUSES

G. Reinken
In the research project "Agrotherm" waste heat of power plants is used for vegetable production throughout the year. PE-tubes in a depth of 75 cm distribute the water. Continuously heating the soil resulted in earlier harvest, increased production and better quality with Brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, celery, French beans, kohlrabi, leek, peas, raddish and winter spinach.
