Abstract All plants in the greenhouse are actually chemical factories. Photosynthesis, the foundation of all production is a complex system of processes. It's fascinating because man cannot match many of these processes, in terms of efficiency. Ironically, an important substance - an enzyme - would be trown out of most factories on grounds of inefficiency. But nature has found something fot thast too.
