Screens & the 'New Way of Growing'
The Dutch government has decreed that new glasshouses should be 'climate-neutral' and existing glasshouses must reduce their energy use by 50% by 2020. Progress is already being made in Holland, so the pressure for UK growers to keep up will be considerable. GrowSave have organised a training event about the 'New Way of Growing' which will take place on April 30th. If you'd like to go, you can register here
One of the energy saving measures becoming increasingly popular in Hollad is to utilise thermal screens for longer, including more daytime use.
New super transparent screen materials as shown above now make it possible to deploy screens in the daytime without decreasing yield. Last year CMW organised a seminar on the subject. If you missed the original report on that, you can read about it here
