These are the steps you should take to have an optimal climate controlled greenhouse

By: Arjan van der Klaauw

When it comes to optimizing the climate within your greenhouse, there are several steps you should take to achieve your goals. First, it is important to consider the differences in weather conditions at your location. Next, it is important to assess issues within your current greenhouse that are limiting production. Following this, identify production goals to determine tailored solutions. Lastly, with the information from the previous steps in mind, consider implementing climate screens within your greenhouse to provide a flexible and adaptable solution. The use of climate screens can optimize climate, improve crop yield and quality while delivering energy savings. Read in this blog how to accomplish the optimization.

Step 1: Consider external climate and crop needs

When planning to improve the consistency of the climate within your greenhouse, it is important to consider the weather at different times of the year, as well as the needs of the crop. Using light intensity as example, if the location your greenhouse is in has a high light intensity for the majority of the year, it may be necessary to implement solutions that protect the crop from sun damage.

Step 2: Assess the issues within your greenhouse

Next it is important to take a look at issues that already exist within your greenhouse to help identify areas for improving the climate. Climate screens are often a great tool solution to many of common issues. Climate screens can play a role in saving energy, improving light distribution, blocking light out entirely or providing shading to prevent crop burning. By first identifying the issues within your greenhouse, it is easier to find the right solution to improve growing conditions and save energy.

Step 3: Identify production goals

The next step towards achieving optimal growing conditions is to clearly define your production goals. In order to determine solutions to achieve an optimal result, it is important to keep these goals in mind. The external climate, crop needs and shortfalls within your greenhouse that were previously identified are a great way to determine goals to reach an optimal climate controlled greenhouse.

Step 4: Consider using climate screens

Finally, consider using climate screens to achieve an optimal climate within your greenhouse. Climate screens can provide versatile solutions to optimize crop yield and quality while keeping energy costs down. By identifying the factors that are contributing to a sub-optimal climate, and implementing appropriate climate screens as a solution, you can achieve consistently optimized growing conditions which can lead to additional advantages like saving energy.
