Importance of greenhouse site selection and constructions

A specific type of structure that regulates the indoor environment by covering it with a transparent or translucent lid. The scientific approach of preparing vegetables, flowers and dharu in a single season is called a greenhouse. In a tropical country like India, there is often no conducive environment for crop production throughout the year. The greenhouse is a blessing in disguise for controlling adverse weather conditions such as extreme cold, extreme heat, intense light, excessive rainfall or water shortages, snowfall, strong winds as well as severe pest infestations. In this greenhouse, carbon dioxide, oxygen and ethylene gas are regulated as required. This method is initially costly, meaning only expensive crops that cannot be grown in the open air and are grown to maintain certain standards required for export or to be processed and value added.


Benefits of a greenhouse:
Any type of plant can be grown anywhere.
Plants can be grown at any time of the year. (Off season)
Healthy good quality, exportable plants can be produced.
Diseases - It is easier to protect against pests.
Planting plants becomes easier. Nurseries can be done easily. (Indoor plants)
Greenhouses are expensive in the beginning but have good benefits in the long run.
Extra income can be earned in less land.
Unconventional (English) vegetables can be grown.
Prepared a greenhouse on the terrace of the house, did kitchen gardening and got daily vegetables.
Greenhouse crops have good production sustainability.
Employment opportunities can be increased.
Common methods of augmentation and tissue culture can be used to grow new plants and harden the prepared plants

What crops can be grown
The following vegetables, ornamental flowers, fruits and ayurvedic crops can be grown in a protected environment.
Vegetables: Tomato, cucumber, lettuce, chilli, capsicum varieties, oats in winter and coriander, fenugreek in summer etc.
Cold vegetables: broccoli, parsley, asparagus, brussels sprouts, Chinese cabbage, leeks, thyme, celery, babycorn, etc.
Fruits: Strawberries, grapes etc.
Ornamental Plants: Hybrid Roses, Chrysanthemums, Funda Plants, Gerberas, Gypsophilia, Carnations, Difenbeckia, Maranta, Aglonima, Coleus, Monstera, Alpenia etc.


A greenhouse is a specific type of structure with a frame covered with a transparent or translucent covering of plastic, polyethylene or glass in which the indoor environment can be modified according to the needs of the crop The main advantage of this is that more flowers or ornamental plants as well as vegetables can be produced from a small area for many months. Also good quality flowers can be grown. At present, greenhouse is considered as a very important organ for floriculture in Gujarat. In our state, high temperature, erratic rainfall, excessive intense sunlight as well as fluctuations in the percentage of humidity in the air have adverse effects on the crop production of flowers. In such a heterogeneous situation, good quality pathogen free flowers can be obtained by controlling the indoor environmental factors through the greenhouse.  So that in the summer season, by cultivating the flowers of cutflowers through the greenhouse, the price can be obtained and more foreign exchange can be obtained by exporting abroad.
