Abstract: 
Through our research in ICBA, scientist are trying to develop economical innovative technologies as a low cost system of protected agriculture that will cut on water and energy consumption. In this research works were focusing on assessing the water and energy use efficiency under both net house cooled by mist system and greenhouse cooled by pad-fan system. ICBA works aim also to develop a low cost substrate based on local materials (e.g. sand, compost).
