Abstract
Photoselective plastic films with thermic properties<br> are now available so that greenhouses clad with such plastics exhibit<br> a higher degree of “Greenhouse Effect” with a consequent increase in<br> night time temperature. In this study, we investigate the potential<br> benefits of a range of thermic plastic films used as greenhouse cover<br> materials on the vegetative and reproductive growth and development<br> of Iceberg lettuce (Lactuca sativa L). Transplants were grown under<br> thermic films and destructively harvested 4, 5, and 6 weeks after<br> transplanting. Thermic films can increase night temperatures up to 2<br> ⁰C reducing the wide fluctuation ...
