Effets du TransPAR, produit d'ombrage photo-sélectif aux infrarouges courts, sur le microclimat et le développement d'une culture de tomates sous serre verre

Abstract : Effets of TransPAR, a NIR reflective paint, on glasshouse microclimate and development of tomato crop have been investigated by comparing TransPAR to a classical shading paint. For this to make, a trial took place in a commercial glasshouse producing tomato in South of France. It appears that photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) are more transmitted in the glasshouse when using TransPAR than the classical shading paint. Furthermore TransPAR alowed the same protection for plants and yield than the classical paint although humidity were lower in TransPAR after second paint application. Thus, photosynthetic potential of the tomato crop is higher with TransPAR, but the identical yields that were obtained lead to think that it is necessary to adapt climatic and crop management in order to benefit of the PAR supplement. Concerning quality results, fruits which were produced under TransPAR had a higher ascorbic acid concentration and the same results were obtained for other chemicals that are as well important for taste and health aspects.
