ORIENTATION OF GREENHOUSES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN ZONE
Physical observations have confirmed that the North-South orientation was a factor contributing to the homogeneity of microclimatic conditions in greenhouses. In contrast, the East-West orientation did not show itself favourable for early growth. This is due to its permanent asymmetry towards the solar trajectory and the direction of prevailing winds
The results of plant growth confirm the physical observations and show that the North-South orientation increases yield and receipts. It also allows a better utilisation of the soil and helps to support the greenhouse against the wind.
