A new Syngenta Crop Protection LLC greenhouse will open in Nampa, Idaho. The facility’s construction went without a hitch and the facility was delivered last month.

The Nampa Trait Conversion Accelerator is a corn breeding facility featuring state-of-the-art greenhouses and laboratories and will accommodate the majority of Syngenta’s North American corn trait conversion work.
A look at the new facility from a different angle
Dool International delivered the greenhouses, the heating, and the screen installation for this project and Mountain High (Giel van der Drift) put the facility together. The project is 16.243 m² in size and consists of fourteen different divisions, three corridors, and 2520 m² of operational floor space. Patrick Silveira was the Syngenta contact during construction.
The end wall is 128 meters long
The facility features closed greenhouses, diffuse glass, powder-coated steel, energy foil, and light deprivation foil. Inside of the facility are air treatment hoses, fans, pad walls (in low-humidity areas, evaporating water into the air provides a natural and energy-efficient means of cooling. Evaporative coolers, also called swamp coolers, rely on this principle, cooling outdoor air by passing it over water-saturated pads, causing the water to evaporate into it.), and LED lighting.
The facility is ready to open soon, the crops have already been planted.
