The Parral type of greenhouse is very common in Southern Spain and other areas of the
Mediterranean Sea. It is a simple, low cost greenhouse structure. Ventilation is by small ridge
openings that are covered with rolling flaps or operable vents. Some also had limited sidewall
openings. These conditions results in major heat stress to the plants.
