THE TRANSPIRATION OF GREENHOUSE TOMATO PLANTS IN ROCKWOOL CULTURE AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO CLIMATIC FACTORS

A. Okuya, T. Okuya
Transpiration of tomato plants grown on rockwool was measured using an electronic balance along with the related climatic factors. Relationships between transpiration and climatic factors were studied. Transpiration was calculated by means of a model based on the saturation deficit and the radiation received on each plant surface assumed to be rectangular parallellepiped. Comparison of measured and calculated transpiration showed that this method was practical to estimate transpiration on an hourly basis.
