About this book

This Proceedings contains the papers presented at the IFAC Conference on Modelling and Control in Agriculture, Horticulture and Post-Harvest Processing held in Wageningen, The Netherlands on 10-12 July 2000. The keynote contributions include an inside view of the challenges of production for advanced life support systems in space, from which much can be learned and applied to advanced on-earth production as well. Sessions on climate control, protected cultivation and animal production showed that production can be controlled and optimised in an economic and environmental sense by applying modern control theory, while assuring human and animal welfare. Other contributions testify that agricultural and horticultural production and post-harvest processing have become high tech sectors where ideas from the world of systems dynamics and control can be applied.
