The value of good environmental control

A greenhouse environment is an incredibly complex and dynamic environment. The pressures of labor availability and costs, energy costs, and market demands increasingly make efficiency and automation key components for success and profitability. Environment control technology affects all of these critical areas, and many others, so understanding controls and implementing their use is more important than ever. Precise control of the greenhouse environment is critical in achieving the best and most efficient growing environment and efficiency.

The controls companies represented in the NGMA have developed a wide array of standard controls designed specifically for greenhouse control requirements and applications.

This document provides a general overview of:
  • The value of good environment control
  • Functions of environment control systems
  • Types of controls available
  • Considerations for selecting appropriate controls
