Resumé

The advantages of Infrared (IR) heating is verified and demonstrated in an experimental greenhouse with eggplant cultivation. IR radiation heating systems possess the advantage of high directional control and focused compensation of energy losses, appropriate for creating local temperature conditions in open or thermally unprotected spaces, resulting in an overall reduction of heat losses and consequently heating energy needs up to 50%. IR heating systems can efficiently maintain favourable environmental conditions at the plant canopy. The objective of this research is to investigate the effect of IR radiation on growth parameters and physiological characteristics of eggplant. Extensive experimental results are presented from a full cultivation period inside two identical, small scale experimental greenhouses, with IR and forced air heating system, correspondingly. Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) is used as the test crop for a three months period. The produced data include solar radiation, relative humidity, greenhouse indoor air temperature and plant growing. Results are compared to conventional cultivation. In parallel with plant growing parameters’ evaluation, the antioxidant and metabolic profile of eggplant from the experimental greenhouse was evaluated in comparison to conventional cultivation.
