  1. If the outside RH is equal to the amount provided by the misters, will the system still work (as evaporative cooling is dependent on the differential between inside and outside RH)? Wouldn't a simple fan system with a GH tube be much cheaper, simpler, and more effective? I've seen similar designs in the tropics, however the problem here is keeping air moving and humidity down. This means a simple rain cover and a fan system. I don't believe that adding more humidity in tropical zones will be helpful, especially considering the many fungal issues present.

  2. This is perfect for the central valley CA what’s the outside vs instead wn 100 outside maybe adding geothermal underground air exchange and a side fan seems like a lot but depending on crop value….

  3. No fans needed?! You should do KW power ,financial, and sustainability test; to verify that misting is or not as useful as a simple circulatory/vent fan.
    I would, as NOT all ideas are actually viable, productive or even close to sustainable.

  4. I love the concept, using a misting system is a smart way to go. I'm concerned that a high humidity climate wouldn't cool much though with a misting system….. I plan to explore this concept more on my channel. Thank you for the video and I hope you got your PHD

  5. Fascinating stuff. I have a small farm and built a small greenhouse from repurposed stuff. Building a aquaponics system. My first greenhouse was single pane plexiglass and is way to hot to do anything but dry seeds.
