High-tech support for the green-fingered: Heating textiles for use in plant cultivation
Textile World
Scientists at the Hohenstein Institute in Bönnigheim, who, together with the roma-Strickstoff-Fabrik Rolf Mayer GmbH & Co. KG and the State College of Horticulture and Agriculture, have developed heating textiles for use in plant cultivation. These are placed around the roots of the plants and so supply them with targeted warmth. The temperature around the roots is a crucial factor in germination, sprouting, plant development and plant growth. That is why, when these high-tech textiles are used in the greenhouse, they help save energy, because the ambient temperature can be greatly lowered with no reduction in yield.
