In the commercial greenhouse industry, there are several key things that need to be considered when setting up a greenhouse. From the temperature, lighting, spacing, sanitation, and water a commercial greenhouse must have everything up to par in order to run smoothly and produce the best possible quality of plants. The best time to ensure that all of these aspects are up to par is when designing and constructing the initial build. By ensuring everything is able to support both the needs of the plants and the goals of the operation, the growing season is able to run efficiently and without the need for costly renovations further down the line.
"RF Agriculture understands the importance of a good build and design as well as the stress that a grower can undergo that can cause new construction or upgrades to be stressful. Available to all commercial operations are services that range from commercial grow consults, installations, design services, construction, management services, and monitoring services. RF Agriculture is able to guide the grower through the entire design, build, set-up, automation, and operations for both new and existing operations," the company announces.
Installation and design services for irrigation
When asked, an experienced agriculturalist will almost certainly feel that a personal connection with the plants. However, no matter how knowledgeable and experienced the grower, one can simply not be a thousand places at once to care for all plants in the commercial operation in the same manner as a single plant in their care. It is with proper design and equipment that an operation can provide homozygous growing conditions to ensure that all plants receive the same kind of care.
In order to do this, an operator needs to have a suitable irrigation system or drip irrigation system that employs precision with technology that waters each plant exactly the same way. With newer systems, a plant can receive the specific water at the specific intervals to get the needed water. A lack of water or too much of it can cause adverse effects or plants that do not grow to their full potential.
Automated agriculture irrigation systems
The best way to achieve the best results and have the ability to concentrate on other aspects of running a commercial greenhouse is through automation. With an automated irrigation system or drip irrigation system, the equipment is completely automated and removes any aspect of human error from the care of plants. Automated systems are not there to replace the human touch, however, they are ideal for guaranteeing the success of an operation. The secret to having automated technology in the greenhouse is finding the balance between human and machine. This will help plants grow and become the best that they can be. Happy plants mean happy yields and happy wallets.
"Whatever the growing system, RF Agriculture can work with the operation and achieve the best design for the irrigation needs of the environment for the plants. Advisors and designers can effectively give design advice and services on many systems ranging from wicking, FT system, drip systems, and more".
