Manipulation of climatic conditions for each type of grafted seedling
The production of grafted vegetable seedlings requires absolute protection against insects, and above all, to be able to create the right climate conditions for each type of crop. Because each plant is best developed at different temperatures and intensities of light, being able to have the flexibility to manipulate climate conditions to the maximum in the greenhouse is a critical factor for the timely germination of different crops.
For Plantanova, a high-tech operation of 1.5 hectares producing grafted seedlings for tomatoes, peppers, watermelons and melons, having temperature control screens and high-porosity insect control screens is essential to meet the innocuity demands of their customers in a timely manner.
In this video, we present the experience that Pharis Rico, general manager of Plantanova and José Hernández grower of the operation, have had using Svensson’s Tempa temperature control screens and the Econet 1535 insect control screens, to optimize climate management in the greenhouse with a total exclusion of insects.
"The difference between having or not having our Svensson screens is really black and white, they even provide us with the abilitiy to make a crop either more vegetative or more generative, which makes a big difference"
