Traditionally, most glass is produced as 'clear glass' - a staple in the growing industry for decades. Diffused glass can also help prevent sunburns from taking hold in the crop.
If you are a grower living in a colder climate, you need structural integrity and full environmental control for successful year-round greenhouse production through the cold, dark and snowy winter months.
While an enticing opportunity, planning a commercial aquaponics greenhouse requires a detailed business plan and a clear understanding of your goals.
On the heels of several technology development milestones and recently granted patents, new funding from NASA will accelerate the scale-up of UbiGro® quantum dot technology for greenhouse roofing
With winter on the horizon, it is important for commercial greenhouse owners to begin prepping for the seasonal shift. There are various tips that help ensure your winter growing season is efficient and successful.
When it comes to greenhouses and other indoor farms, it is important for HVAC units to create proper air circulation to ensure optimal growing conditions. Heating solutions are also needed to enhance growing conditions during cold weather.
When owners and head growers first start thinking about building a new commercial grow facility, often the first thing on their minds is profitability-how do we differentiate our product and outperform the competition with better plant quality and higher yields?
NextGen Nano has released an infographic highlighting how the production of solar-powered glazing for greenhouse windows can help contribute to a sustainable future.
When faced with challenges of contamination and odor control, some indoor growers have adopted pressurized ventilation methods, manipulating positive and negative pressure to protect their grow spaces.
If growers don't want to go the custom route with their new greenhouse, they can obtain a prefab greenhouse. Typically available as greenhouse kits, a prefab greenhouse can offer a simpler, streamlined choice for many operations.
New Air Source Heat Pumps provide energy efficient heating for garden centre whilst reducing CO2 emissions
Three new Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) have been installed at the Perrywood Tiptree garden centre in Essex, providing a much more energy-efficient heating solution than the old oil-fired boiler system previously used.
Polycarbonate panels offer growers a superior cladding solution, delivering effective light transmission and diffusion, simplifying maintenance and improving their structure's heat retention. They also present a number of options to choose from.
-Team GreenOverMorrow from Morocco wins with a smart energy management solution to set the energy transition of agriculture in motion -The winners receive a 10,000-euro cash prize
Cannabis is well-known to be a resource-intensive crop. From lighting to water to HVAC to soil, there are numerous factors that affect production, morphology, costs, and waste.
Controlled environment agriculture will likely play a critical role in the future of crop production. Both commercially and locally, operations that use this growing strategy can produce crops year-round, while improving the quality and size of their harvests.
