In the series ‘Protected Horticulture’, Wageningen Academy organizes the course ‘Climate management and control’ from Monday 5 until Friday 9 October 2015 at Wageningen Campus. This course offers opportunities for maximum resource efficiency and high quality production. This is achieved by both simple and advanced techniques for climate management topics like energy, climate, carbon dioxide and transpiration (active and passive) management.
After completion of this course trainees are expected to be able to:
- Understand how technology (greenhouse design and choice of equipment) affects climate management, crop production and resource use efficiency
- Apply this knowledge to quantitatively solve specific problems, both in greenhouse design and climate control
- Understand economic motivations and goal functions
