The controller can execute inflow control for making external air which is air in an external environment of a crop space flow into a crop space where crops in the house exist. In S211, the controller predicts whether or not dew condensation occurs on crops by the inflow control. If the controller determines that, temperature of air in the crop space is equal to or less than a dew point temperature of the external air, and absolute humidity of the external air is equal to or more than absolute humidity corresponding to a relative humidity 100% time of the temperature of air in the crop space, the controller predicts that the dew condensation occurs on the crops, in S211. In the dew condensation suppression processing, the controller shifts processing to S212 if it is predicted that the dew condensation occurs in S211, then inhibits the inflow control.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 5
