New ways to save energy

Some Dutch growers are achieving impressive energy savings by adopting new approaches to climate control arising from the Dutch HNT (New Way of Growing) programme - without any adverse impact on yield or quality
Much of the HNT work is now available for study in the Dutch language, but to ensure that UK growers are fully aware of the latest thinking GrowSave have organised two seminars during April, which will be led by 4 experts in the programme, including one of the authors of a recently published Dutch language summary of the basic principles of the New Way of Growing.
CMW will host the first seminar on April 20th. We'd like to see you there!
The seminar will be repeated in Harlow on April 21st.
You can book your place at one of the seminars on the GrowSave website here.

(It's free to all AHDB levy payers)

Screens deteriorate over time

One of the key aspects to the New Way of Growing involves using thermal screens differently. This can mean using screens more during day, or taking a new approach to humidity control underneath and/or above a screen, saving a lot of energy in the process.
You can hear all about what this means in more detail during the HNT seminars.
However, many screens which are still in use after many years cannot be utilised during the day because of low light transmission due to the build-up of dirt and algae over time, and, 
because of wear and tear, most no longer deliver the same energy saving as they did when first installed.

The image above is typical of how many screens can look after some years of use.
So more growers are either thinking about renewing their existing screen or have already done so.
