Özet

Greenhouse agriculture is limited only by the shores of the Mediterranean and Aegean regions in Turkey. Greenhouse agriculture is not preferred by the producers in other regions. Especially when the Dicle basin is chosen as an example, it is necessary to heat the greenhouses in order to achieve the optimum conditions in cold seasons. However, heating costs even in temperate regions has a major share in the total production expenditure. For this reason, in our country, local heating is only applied to protect the plants from freezing in order to prevent regular heating in the greenhouses. Failure to achieve the required level of climate conditions and the lack of heating brings with it problems such as low yield, limitation of production and the necessity of using the hormone.
