Solar greenhouse, running manual

This manual is based on experimentation and studies led in Ladakh (3500m altitude). The passive solar greenhouse designed by GERES is adapted to grow vegetables in Ladakh and similar climatic areas. The greenhouse is designed to pick up maximum solar radiation, to store heat and release it at night. This manual should help farmers and development organisations to use this tool at best.
