Event description

Description

Controlling the climate, especially humidity, can be one of the most challenging and confusing parts of maintaining the right greenhouse environment. Traditionally, the application of heat helped to regulate humidity, but this is costly and often affects other conditions adversely.

On the 27 February, we are holding a Climate Control workshop at New Forest Fruits for soft fruit growers. The day will focus on the following:

The basics of humidity control – exploring the issues around control, why it is needed and how it can be achieved, as well as introducing some of the new thinking about glasshouse conditions.

The sources, storage and usage of CO2 – the factors influencing CO2 systems and economics have changed: most significantly from the way glasshouses are heated and notably with the uptake of biomass boilers. Growers have also embraced biomass heating and some have taken advantage of generous renewables subsidies to fund installations of anaerobic digestion (AD) plants.

The seven tips of Next Generation Growing Over the past year, GrowSave ran a pilot study group project focusing on implementing Next Generation Growing (NGG) techniques in the UK horticulture sector. We will introduce the basic principles of NGG and the benefits that can be realised.
