In order to make  the right choice, first you need to know your purpose. What do you need a greenhouse for, is it for private use or for business?

If you are considering options for business such as large industrial vegetable production, either a startup, or a medium or small enterprise.

For a startup farmer we would advise taking a closer look at standard foil greenhouse.

High-quality materials allow to keep the greenhouse how it is all winter without any need to roll up the film even if you don’t plan to grow and/or use any heating. That applies for free-standing block. In case of multispan, we recommend to use snow melting tubes for under the gutters to melt the snow down.

Greenhouse construction is made of hot-dip galvanized steel. Connections are made of a special material resistant to UV radiation and excessive humidity. Plastic film is a special greenhouse foil designed for many years of operation available in wide range of specialized agricultural and technical properties.

The minimum size of one greenhouse block is as follows: width 9.6m/12.8 m, length 50 m and more.

The design standard greenhouse available as free-standing or multispan, meaning, up to 10 hectares (25 acres) of the greenhouse can be under one roof.

The distance between the supporting posts will be at least 9.6 m, that allows the passage of any transport into the greenhouse.

Lighting system allows growing and harvesting crop year-round including wintertime. Construction of the greenhouse is calculated for the load of inside equipment such as heating pipes, irrigation and ventilation systems, as well as high wire system for the plants.

In case you plan to grow different types of crop, for example, flowers and vegetables, we would advise you to have several greenhouses blocks where each separate block would be used for the crop.

You can also could build one greenhouse complex with separate growing departments separated by partition walls.

If you consider investing in agriculture, namely in the turnkey greenhouse business, we would recommend taking closer look at glass greenhouses.

For best ROI, we recommend minimum greenhouse area for growing vegetables of at least 3 hectares, and for lettuce – at least 1 hectare. Depending on the selected crops, a return on investment is possible from 3.5 years.
