Advice for farmers

  • Wind speed in the region –we check if this area has had typhoons in the past 20 years.

  • The specific crop that will be grown – Certain crops, as they grow, are tied to the structure of the greenhouse, and add to the load on the structure.

  • Snowfall in the planned region – Does it ever snow in this region, and if so, how much and how often is expected?

  • Annual precipitation – The annual and seasonal precipitation.

  • Environmental temperature – How will the temperature in the greenhouse be affected by a change in season? What has the weather in this area been like in the past 20 years? We use this information in order to learn the expected weather for the following years.

  • Radiation – What will be the amount of radiation in the greenhouse due to photosynthesis?

  • Humidity – what is the relative humidity in the region? Does it have any effect on the specific crop?

  • Water quality – Is the irrigation water in the area of the greenhouse “good quality” or does it require treatment?

  • Soil analysis – Is the soil in the region enabling to grow in soil or do we need a different solution.

  • Precipitation analysis – Is the precipitation in the region enabling us to grow in NH or we should look for a Greenhouse? Is there any heavy rain season that needs a special drainage system?
