Advantages
ADVANTAGES

  • Early and uniform transplants.

  • Healthier plants.

  • Less transplant shock.

  • Earlier harvest of vegetables.


Considerations
CONSIDERATIONS

  • Requires capital investment.

  • Requires intensive management.

  • Crop failures due to insects, disease, and equipment failure.


Crops grown from transplants
CROPS GROWN FROM TRANSPLANTS

  • Peppers

  • Tomatoes

  • Broccoli

  • Onion

  • Watermelon

  • Squash








Cooling the greenhouse
Cooling the greenhouse. filled with soil less media.

  • Fans are used to exhaust hot air.
