Stockbridge to host glasshouse humidity control workshop

Recent developments in greenhouse humidity control techniques include using fan systems and switching to different humidity measures like absolute humidity or vapour pressure deficit.

These latest concepts feature in a Humidity Control Workshop on 10 March at Stockbridge Technology Centre (STC). The event is being held in conjunction with the Tomato Working Party (TWP) and the topics covered will be of interest to protected salad crop growers.

The workshop will run from 1pm to 4.30pm and it will be led by Rene Beerkens, Greenhouse Climate Consultant with Hoogendoorn Growth Management in the Netherlands.

Beerkens is an experienced climate control specialist and trainer who works with clients worldwide. He has specialist knowledge in water and energy management, crop physiology and crop monitoring.

Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Attendance is free and open to all HDC members.
