The term describing water loss from plants through emission of water vapour via the leaves by transpiration – can be a major form of stress for plants. Evaporation: the process of extracting moisture; moisture becoming a vapour, Transpiration: the emission of water vapor from the leaves of plants.

Wind Force

Its full name is the Beaufort wind force scale, although it is a measure of wind speed and not of force in the scientific sense. Wind force is what you feel when you try to stand up in a strong wind. Wind force is what blows the dust, bends the trees etc.

Shade Levels

By |2019-01-31T12:13:54+10:00December 26th, 2017|Comments Off on Shade Levels

Shade levels under coloured and white fabrics are measured in PAR (photsynthetically active radiation). This is approximately equivalent to visible radiation; 100% shade is solid.A white fabric will typically have a shade level of about 7/10 of that of a black fabric of the same weave.

Light spectrum

By |2019-01-31T12:17:48+10:00December 26th, 2017|Comments Off on Light spectrum

The ordered array of the components of light. The colour of the fabric influences the colour (or spectrum) of the light that is absorbed, and hence the spectrum “seen” by the plants. Black fabrics absorb all light equally. White and "clear" fabrics have a reduced effect on the ultra-violets, but a similar effect to black on the infra-reds.
