With the advent of sophisticated greenhouse technologies, computerized greenhouse has naturally become imperative. It has created new opportunities to manipulate the indoor environment according to the specific needs of plants. The temperature under greenhouse is the most influential factor on the plants. Usually, it has been closely correlated with the other climatic parameters. This paper examines new ways to control internal greenhouse temperature using two types of controllers: PID and PI-intelligent. The two controllers give good results, except that the PID requires a method of parameters identification, which should be valid for a large time as possible. It is therefore necessary to repeat the chosen identification technique face to change unexpected of external parameters. However, the PI-intelligent controller permits to keep the adjusted gain for a long time thanks to actualised identification and resulted by algebraic method. In order to visualize the evolution of climatic parameters in real time, a graphic interface has been developed.
