"Energy is arguably the biggest challenge for greenhouse growers in these times. Rising prices and supply uncertainty have hit many growers and have even led some to skip the winter grow cycle altogether. So naturally, energy is on everyone's mind at the upcoming IPM exhibition in Essen", says Ziv Shaked with DryGair. One energy-saving technology on many visitors' agendas is DryGair dehumidifiers.
DryGair's technology has been used for over a decade in commercial horticulture projects to control humidity, prevent diseases and save energy. "Over this period, it has been shown to save greenhouse growers as much as 70% on total energy consumption. In today's energy market, that can mean a very quick ROI of 1-3 years", Ziv calculates.
"Many may be wary of making large investments in this economic climate. But an investment in energy efficiency seems to be the best way to ensure a profitable business in the coming years."
DryGair will be presenting their solution at the upcoming exhibition, and the team will be available for discussion and consultation. The DryGair booth, shared with Royal Brinkman, is in Hall 3, stand 3D34.
