What is an intelligent greenhouse?

An intelligent greenhouse has the ability to control the environmental variables that affect the crop. We list the main systems controlled in an intelligent greenhouse: Climate control There are installed two weather stations, one inside to control the climatic parameters of the cultivation, and another one on the outside to…

Advantages of greenhouse production

The choice of produce in a greenhouse has resulted in a number of advantages to farmers that we detailed them below: Off-season crops The production closed with the ability to control the weather (temperature and humidity) inside allows the cultivation of demanding species, as far as weather is concerned, in…

Solar Irrigation System

Solar Irrigation: A domestic and easiest way to settle an irrigation system. Solar irrigation is a domestic irrigation technique, it tries to exploit the evaporation that occurs in a closed enclosure by a transparent plastic cover, within temperature rise due to the greenhouse effect, to water by evaporation and condensation…
For some time we receive the request to budget greenhouses snails and from Novedades Agricolas, we ask ourselves: 1. At what level of production is a profitable production model? 2. What is the greenhouse structure more suitable for breeding of snails? The heliculture is defined as the rational breeding in…

Irrigation Or Fertigation For The Crop?

Nutrition in living organisms is understood as increasing material through food. If we apply this definition to the plants and we stop for a moment to consider: What kind of foods are needed by plants? The following chart shows a clear indication of the response. As you can see, among…
It includes all operations since irrigation water enters in our farm to the output of the nutrient solution by the emitter: 2.1.- Treatment: Depending on the physical and chemical nature of the water it is necessary to design a specific treatment for this search. In addition to filtering, we must…
One of the main characteristics of greenhouses is the use of plastic as cladding material, except for Dustch greenhouses or Venlo type using glass. In the market there are different plastics materials to use in greenhouses, and depending on several factors we will choose either. Factors to consider to choose…
Fertilizers are the minerals elements that we incorporate to the irrigation water, once dissolved, what we get is the nutrient solution. To make this nutrient solution water chemistry must be taken into account for subtracting the nutrients already present in composition, since once dissolved salts, (dissociated) there is no way…
Reasons to use Handest Hangers As the plant grows it is rolling in the opposite direction to clockwise, until it reaches the wire grid. Once the plant has reached the grid, there is no growing chance of the plant to ensure correct formation of this and its fruits, so the…
Tomato Plantation: In tomato crops, the plantation framework is set depending on: The Plant Greenhouse Model Growing Cycle The Commercial variety, etc. Standard growing density is usually about 2 plants / m2. Tomato and Vegetables Pruning: The strategy regarding pruning is an essential practice for vegetables indeterminate. This work is…

How to Improve Greenhouse Ventilation

Systems Used: The types of vents used have ranged from: Manual opening band Opening of joints planes greenhouses and then in the "scrapes and amagado" failed trials of small manual roof windows (they were insufficient and wind could broke them) Rolling vents, also widely used in greenhouses (the bonus was…
Currently most of greenhouses, located in the country, have ventilation problems from various causes such as: Lack of surface ventilation Inadequate height of most of greenhouses Poor structure (as general rule) The use of anti-trips meshes that interrupts the air flow, etc. Best conditions for Greenhouse Ventilation: Ventilation rates should…

How to Manage Heat in Greenhouses

Direct combustion One of the dispensing systems using CO2 combustion gases are hot air generators with direct combustion (combustion gases remain inside the greenhouse). The generators are low power (50-100 kW thermal) and they are distributed along the greenhouse surface according to CO2 production or as heat required. For this…
Two sources of CO2 are used in greenhouses to conduct carbon fertilization: The first comes from the use of flue gas (LPG and natural gas) generated in the same holding. The second uses pure liquefied gas obtained from industrial processes (fermentation, production of fertilizers, etc.). Gases from industrial processes The…
