Greenhouse Technology

Vegetables are important for food security and poverty alleviation. Nevertheless, in South Africa food insecurity still exists. Greenhouse technology is already a very important way to produce vegetables in South Africa because of the production potential, the high quality of the produce and the efficient water usage. We manufacture high quality steel or galvanised steel greenhouse tunnels and supply all necessary equipment and inputs.

We also manufacture Tunnels for Fish Farming, Bird Aviaries, Storage Units, Ostrich Fledglings, Mushroom Farming, Plant Nurseries and more…

 

Single-Span Greenhouse Tunnels

Our single-span greenhouse tunnel is ideal for emerging and commercial farmers.  More units can be integrated as your business grows.   

Standard Tunnels are 10m x 30m in size, however, we do manufacture various size tunnels.   In addition, standard or roll-up sides are available.    A heating and/or cooling system is also optional. 

Tunnels can be covered with Greenhouse Plastic, shade-net and poly-carbonate plastic. For more specialized units, covering is quoted to the customers’ specification or application.

Hobby Tunnels

In hot climates around the world, vegetables and cut flowers are grown under shade net to reduce heat and light intensity.  With the help of science, innovative light manipulation and UV management results show that photo-selective colour nets create an environment that can be managed and turned into optimal growing conditions.  This allows the farmer to produce crops, many times during off-season,  that have better growth, development and a higher yield.

New Generation Emerging Farmers ‘VERTI-SOCK’ initiative adds a flare to vertical farming.  This cleverly thought up shade net design allows for some interesting growing ideas to beautify water tank structures.
