Growing crops in greenhouses to promote sustainability

Thank you for your continued interest in Ginegar and our products!

Over the years, we’ve made a lot of effort to communicate globally that growing crops in greenhouses has a significant positive effect on the environment as it enables the production of higher yields (6 to 10 times the amount as compared to growing in open fields) with fewer resources.


Creating optimum growth conditions

One of the biggest advantages of greenhouses is the ability to achieve optimum growth conditions in any climactic zone – whether it be hot, cold, moderate or tropical – as compared to growing crops in open fields where climactic control is not possible. For example, peppers cannot be grown outside in winter due to the cold, but they can be grown in warmer conditions in greenhouses; and when it is too hot, dry or humid for certain crops in the summer, they can be grown in greenhouses under cooler controlled conditions.

The ability to control climactic conditions within greenhouses also reduces the risks associated with sudden weather fluctuations, thus giving growers confidence and predictability all year round!


Reduced amount of pesticides in greenhouses

New regulations are being introduced all the time that limit the amount of pesticides used to a predefined range, and require growers to monitor all processes and produce crops that meet certain standards in terms of size, flavor and color.

As greenhouses and protected growing houses can reduce the use of pesticides required for crops, they give growers the confidence to meet these market requirements and regulations.


Ensuring nutritional value in developing countries

While greenhouses and protected growing houses are traditionally used for the commercial or large-scale cultivation of vegetables, fruit, flowers, and other crops, they can also help smaller growers to efficiently cultivate crops for their own personal use or smaller-scale consumption.

Important note about treatment of agricultural waste

Agricultural waste such as cover films, pipes, hanging wires and more may be constitute an environmental hazard when not properly treated after usage.
The dumping of such agricultural waste on the periphery of fields can cause multiple environmental hazards, including soil pollution and air pollution (usually caused by the burning of such waste, which can also be a health hazard).
For this reason, after cover films are used, the agricultural waste must be collected in a designated area and then treated according to each country’s regulations.
