Bridging the divide between science and commercial greenhouse practice in the use of parameters and their units
There exists a great divide between the research community and commercial greenhouse growers that limits the knowledge transfer thereby devaluing a significant amount of practical and pure research. This divide is created by a language barrier that separates these broad groups and is predicated on the simple choice of scientific units used in 'day to day' activities and nomenclature. We can 'bridge the divide' by categorising common scientific units used by both groups and ensuring future output by the research community includes the units as used by global commercial greenhouse growers.
