The Computerized Greenhouse : Automatic Control Application in Plant Production
The aim of this book is to open up research areas in automatic control engineering for crop production systems in horticulture and agriculture, and to explain the ideas of automatic control in plant production. It includes detailed discussions of: modelling; artificial intelligence for agricultural applications; optimal control and its applications; control for agricultural systems; and fundamental systems engineering concepts.
