Importance of Greenhouse farming

On a smaller scale, greenhouse farming is more suited. As a result, it is restricted to the cultivation of vegetables, flowers, herbs, and tiny fruits such as strawberries. Another downside of greenhouse farming is that the confined structure prevents pollination. Aside from the aforementioned drawbacks, greenhouse farming is sometimes criticized for being an expensive agriculture method. The expenses of greenhouse construction and maintenance, on the other hand, are solely determined by the type of greenhouse structure and farm management system utilized. In other words, smallholder and family farmers may afford considerably more basic greenhouse constructions. To summarize:

  1. Because greenhouses hold moisture, they use significantly less water than conventional farming.
  2. Reduces cropping length while also increasing crop quality.
  3. Temperature and humidity are precisely managed to meet the needs of the plants.
  4. If you want to raise high-value crops, greenhouses are the way to go.
  5. It is also feasible to cultivate off-season crops in greenhouses.
  6. Through the utilization of greenhouses, educated youth can develop prospects for self-employment.
  7. Pests are fairly easy to manage.
  8. It is particularly adaptable since crops may be produced in a variety of climates.
