Human transmission important part of greenhouse cleanliness

With crop-rotation coming, it is important to ensure the safety of this process. Compared with traditional greenhouses, the pests and diseases in modern tomato production greenhouses have been greatly reduced, and the use of crop protection is also decreasing. However, viral diseases are still a headache for growers.

The cause of virus disease is very complicated. It may be the seeds or seedlings, it may be the virus residue in the environment that infects the plant, with the disease occurring when it encounters suitable water and fertilizer and environment. Regardless of the reason, only by disinfecting the greenhouse can the probability of virus disease be minimized. But in a greenhouse with a high degree of automation of environment and water and fertilizer, the greater possibility of viral diseases is due to human transmission.

Human transmission
For the disinfection of greenhouse employees and visitors, the glass greenhouse in Shandong Province designed and built by Kingpeng arranged a changing room and disinfection station at the entrance of the greenhouse to disinfect the hands and feet of personnel and wear disinfected clothes. This is to prevent people from entering the greenhouse with foreign viruses.

Disinfection of materials and tools
The materials and tools used in the greenhouse need to be disinfected regularly. If the substrate is recycled or soil-grown in the greenhouse, attention should be paid to the substrate and soil disinfection.

Sterilization of storage areas
Packaging areas, cold rooms, and material storage areas need to be disinfected regularly.

Water system disinfection
The commonly used method of irrigation water disinfection is UV disinfection machine. Degradable disinfectants can also be supplemented during the crop rotation period for system-wide disinfection
