Vegetables are rich source of vitamins, carbohydrates, salts and proteins. There is a year round high demand for fresh vegetables in the country in domestic and export market due to: increased health awareness, high population growth rate, changing dietary patterns of increasingly affluent middle class, and availability of packaged vegetables. But due to unfavorable climatic conditions, there is a flood of vegetables in the season and high priced vegetables in off-season. Vegetables can be cultivated in off-season, with the introduction of green houses, low and high poly tunnel technology, in which temperature and moisture are controlled for specific growth of vegetables.

When the temperature falls below 16°C for extended periods, growth and yields usually decrease. It can tolerate day temperature above 30°C. Sweet pepper are generally raised in open fields during main season thus causing glut in the market, which lead to price crash in the season. Punjab has extreme low temperature during winter and high temperature during summer, and therefore availability of these vegetables are for a short span. This situation suggests us to modify microclimate, which will not only increase the availability span of vegetables but also the yield.
