A theoretical model has been developed to show that while there is no limitation on water supply form the roots, the foliage temperature of the undeveloped canopy will be similar to that of a dense canopy in greenhouses. The rate of transpiration for the plants of sparse canopy is on average 20% higher and the leaves attain a higher temperature by one degree than the leaves of the plants grouped as dense canopy. The effect of cooling by fogging on foliage temperature is investigated.
