Exhaust air from a Kansas State University swine-farrowing house provides CO2 and possibly other gases that are being used by vegetable plants in a KSU greenhouse. In addition, a rock-storage system reduces fuel requirements of the greenhouse. Tomatoes and cucumbers have been the major food crops studied, but transplant production of geraniums, marigolds, snapdragons, and calendula also has been studied. Poinsettias were grown as a fall crop in 1980 and again in 1982.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 11, 1982
