EVALUATION OF THE THERMAL BEHAVIOR OF PLANTS IN THE MICROGREENHOUSE WITH MICROBOLOMETRIC IMAGE SENSORS
EVALUAREA COMPORTARII TERMICE A PLANTELOR IN MICROSERA CU SENZORI DE IMAGINE MICROBOLOMETRICI
In this research, the data from temperature measurements obtained with the InfiRay T2S+ device, an infrared thermal imaging camera have been checked to monitor plant thermal behaviour. Plant leaf temperature is a parameter frequently used as representative for stomatal conductance, as stomatal confinement results in attenuated transpiration, and consequently leads to increased plant temperature. Also, to identify the stress of the plant, indices of thermal and modified stress have been calculated. The results obtained show that the Kalanchoe blossfeldiana species chosen for this study, when exposed to extreme values of temperature or water requirements, presented significant changes in the infrared electromagnetic wave spectra.
