Calibrating your digital humidity sensors

On a recent post I talked about vapor pressure deficit and its importance in hydroponic culture. To adequately control VPD it's necessary to accurately measure relative humidity and in order to do so it's necessary to have adequately calibrated humidity sensors. Since most of today's humidity sensors are digital this becomes even more important as these sensors can…

Vapor pressure deficit (VPD) in hydroponics

If you have read books or articles about greenhouse environmental control you have probably heard about Vapor Pressure Deficit, also known as VPD. This is an important variable to measure as it helps us understand the conditions our plants are facing, gauge their water use and even predict whether we will be getting better or…
