Greenhouse farming is an emerging trend in agriculture that has many benefits, including higher yields and reduced environmental impact. It is a type of agriculture that uses artificial light to simulate direct sunlight and help plants grow faster. This technique can be used in various climates, including South Africa, where it has been increasingly adopted due to the regions hot, dry conditions.
One of the main benefits of greenhouse farming is that it allows farmers to grow crops year round, even if it is winter outside. This means that they can get a wider variety of crops than they would be able to get if they only had access to seasonal climates. It also means they don’t have to worry about harsh weather conditions affecting their plants.
Greenhouse farming enable farmers to control the environment inside the greenhouse, which leads to greater production efficiency and higher yields. In addition, greenhouse farming manure can be used as fertilizer on land outside the greenhouse, reducing pollution and improving soil health.
There are some essential things that you will need to get started with greenhouse farming: Land, a Greenhouse Building, and the necessary equipment. You can find land for greenhouse farming in many places throughout the country, but the best locations will likely be in areas with good rainfall and warm temperatures. If you starting a small farm, you may not need a large greenhouse. A smaller one will work well for growing vegetables, herbs, fruit trees, and flowers. However, you must invest in a good – quality greenhouse to grow larger crops such as fruits and vegetables.
Greenhouse farming is a popular method of agriculture in South Africa because it allows farmers to cultivate crops indoors during winter when temperatures outside are below freezing. A wide variety of crops can be grown in greenhouses including – tomatoes, strawberries, cucumbers, watermelons, peppers, egg plant, beans, peas, lilies, roses, and squash to name a few.
