CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS FOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND HORTICULTURAL PRACTICE
Phytotronics is now beginning its evolution. Although a new phytotron is built less than once every two years in different countries, growth chambers and cabinets (walk-in or reach-in) are bought not only by Research Institutes and Experimental Stations but also by private companies and horticultural crop growers. All of those who use these devices carry out phytotronics in practice. Phytotrons are made for a certain way of tackling the scientific problems of the relationships between plants and their environment and everybody who works with the same installations must have this in mind.
