When the day changes the night according to the season all plants and vegetables have the ability to adjust the developed reaction to these changes. The initial reaction called photoperiodism.

Everybody has to know that all the vegetables (in greenhouses or not) are divided according to the intensity of the lighting into three main groups:

    1. The very demanding plants. This group includes tomato, pepper, eggplant. This type of vegetables requires 30000-40000 Lk of daylight.

    3. The weakly demanding plants. The vegetables of this group grow due to nutrients in productive organs. That is why it is possible to grow these vegetables without intensive lighting. To the group of slightly demanding ones we can include the following: onions on a feather, parsley, rhubarb, sorrel. These vegetables require lighting around 1000-1500 Lk of the daylight.

During the growing season different types of vegetable crops are treated differently to the intensity of illumination and the exactingness. All of this depends on the phase of development and can vary in vegetable greenhouse (greenhouse kits). The greatest need of light is observed at the very beginning of the growing season. The illumination of the closed ground can be adjusted automatically and as the result the length of the daylight can be easily increased.
