Why Use Greenhouses and Nethouses to Grow Crops?
Imagine being able to grow all crop types, anywhere in the world, year-round, without being dependent on weather conditions. That’s the dream, right?
Complete Control for the First Time
A greenhouse or a nethouse is a totally managed and controllable system. You can keep a micro-grasp on climate, both temperature and humidity, as well as deciding how much light and radiation is reaching your crops, regardless of actual sunlight in the region. You also have control over the soil type through the use of detached substrate so that you can match the optimal soil to the plant type. Of course, you also have full decision-making power over how much water and fertilizer reaches your crops. This allows you to direct the blooming season of the plants, removing the factor of seasonal availability.
As a greenhouse is a protected environment, you will eliminate the challenges of insects, birds or other pests, including natural adverse weather conditions such as wind, snow or hail. For plants or vegetables that need special treatments, your success rate is going to much higher in this type of controlled environment. As an added bonus, you can collect and recycle any water leftovers, reducing waste and opening doors for innovative irrigation solutions.
With the right knowledge and experience, and an investment for the equipment and ongoing cleaning maintenance, greenhouses can produce more crops in a smaller area, removing the restrictions of seasons and weather, and providing incredibly granular control.
