Teamwork makes for swift ground cover replacement at Red Sun Farms

Ground cover replacement is usually something that growers postpone simply because it is a time consuming job. In December we showed how a Dutch grower replaced 7 hectares in 2.5 weeks with the help of 20 workers. This was fast, yet the growers at Red Sun Farms believed the job could be done even faster. They uploaded a video on YouTube that shows them replacing the 4.8 hectare of ground cover at their greenhouse in Dublin, Virginia, in 4 days, with just 12 people!

Can you beat this? Let us know and join the Crop Change Winter Hort-Olympics ;-)
