In recent years, with the domestic scale, modern planting has become more and more popular, and planting under polytunnels has received more and more attention from growers, and it has been applied in various fields such as berries, vegetables, and flowers.
There are many benefits of planting under polytunnels, which can improve the level of industrialisation, improve the ability to resist natural disasters, and increase crop yields. Nevertheless, one should not be complacent when growing under tunnels, and should seek to strategise carefully in order to maximise profits.
So, how can we improve profitability? This is one of the most important questions in commercial agriculture.
Haygrove has been deeply involved in the field of growing systems and technology for many years. We are both growers and equipment manufacturers. Through our experience accumulation, we have found that if we can achieve the following points, and cooperate with scientific management and operation plans, we can maximize the benefits of polytunnel planting.
1. Farm site selection
After selecting the crops, the correct selection of the farm site is a key factor in determining the success of crop planting. The choice of location requires comprehensive, multi-faceted, survey and evaluation. For customers who choose greenhouse cultivation and substrate cultivation, the most important considerations are weather conditions and water resources.
We not only need to pay attention to the local temperature fluctuation information, but also the extreme low/high temperature information, and the temperature impact caused by the changes in the latitude of different sites; in addition, we should also consider the precipitation in the growing season and the time and intensity of the precipitation.
The farm must ensure sufficient water sources, which can be groundwater, rivers or reservoirs, and the quality of the water sources must meet the standards of agricultural irrigation water.
2. Farm Design
The designing of the arm mainly follows the following principles:
Road system planning
The distribution and width of main roads, branch roads, and work roads in the park need to be considered in the initial planning stage.
Drainage system planning
The planning and layout of the drainage system must be carried out on the basis of investigation and research, finding out the topography, address, drainage outlets, existing drainage facilities, and drainage planning.
Based on the climatic characteristics of the project site and the growth requirements of the selected crops, the suitable polytunnel size and specifications will be matched accordingly. Haygrove has polytunnels with different span widths for you to choose. Considering ventilation and economy, we would recommend the bay width for each project.
Plant row spacing planning
Arranging plants reasonably positioned according to the spacing required for crop growth and the convenience of harvesting operations is also the key to ensuring stable yields.
3. Polytunnel selection
Globally, Haygrove has more than 30 years of growing experience, with a total planting area of more than 12,000 mu.
For decades, Haygrove has continuously improved and innovated Haygrove's products from its own planting experience and its customers. We have always been at the forefront of the times, hoping to provide growers with better planting systems. Today our growing systems cater to more than 30 crops. We are both a grower and an equipment manufacturer, and our dual roles are synergistically boosted so that we can maximize our advantages to both ourselves and our customers.
If we look at the installation speed, ventilation capacity, life span and service point of view, the price/performance ratio of Haygrove polytunnels is undoubtedly among the best.
