The perfect growing environment. Whether you are looking for a Coldframe, High Tunnel, Freestanding Greenhouse, or a Venlo, Curved Glass or Poly Covered Gutter Connected structure, when designing a greenhouse structure we start with the end result in mind: A Quality Commercial Greenhouse Environment.
GGS Structures - Produce
Commercial farmers have the great responsibility of providing food for the entire world. That commitment requires a surplus of dedication–and an intense focus on building the best possible environment where quality plants and produce can flourish.
But every farm is different. Every aspect of a crop’s health relies on the careful management of its surroundings. Contemporary farmers face increased pressure to grow more varied produce in greater amounts. They need structures that not only simulate ideal growing environments but have the flexibility and customization to grow quality, diverse produce in a high-yield, cost-efficient way.
GGS is a full-service greenhouse solution for agribusinesses of all sizes. We work with individual farmers to design custom greenhouses that suit their needs in precise detail. We build environments for all businesses, from large-scale industrial and commercial growers to smaller and local farmers. Our products address each farmer’s specific needs for greenhouse shade, ventilation, irrigation, and scale. Our turnkey approach focuses on making every farm, large or small, a model of efficiency and success.
Benefits of Commercial Greenhouses for Growing Produce
Industrial greenhouses may seem like considerable up-front investments, especially for agribusinesses with a cap on outside resources or strong ecological concerns. But the right commercial greenhouse offers many sizable advantages for growing environments, productivity, cost savings, and environmental protection.
GGS commercial greenhouses come with features that result in significant upside for large and small-scale farmers that can save money, boost revenue and sustain the environment:
- Less water use- Commercial greenhouses support the use of hydroponic methods that reduce the overall consumption of water. Drip irrigation is installed more closely to the soil where plants receive more moisture directly, and gravity-based solutions like trough systems, flood benches, and flood floors can lessen both the water and human labor needed for complete irrigation.
- Less waste- With more hands-on control over the growing environment, commercial greenhouse users can monitor and adjust the growing environment to yield more production while using fewer resources. This results in a more usable product with less wasteful remains and is a major advantage of controlled agriculture.
- Smaller carbon footprint- By using alternative energy resources, reducing or eliminating waste production, and modifying operations to maximize use from fewer materials, commercial greenhouse growers can emit less carbon dioxide and other composite materials that harm the environment.
- Customizing and controlling the environment- A commercial greenhouse allows the farmer to create an ideal environment for the plants they produce. Growers can more closely simulate humidity and light conditions required to cultivate their crops. They can also modify the conditions to allow the growth of unusual or "exotic" plants not native to their region. Customized greenhouses also eliminate or greatly reduce the need for chemical pesticides, adverse environmental conditions, and external contaminants.
- Organic and sustainable product- With reduced use and waste of natural resources, exclusion of artificial or inorganic substances, and the saving of energy, water, and excessive waste, greenhouse growers are more able to cultivate products that can be certified and labeled as organic and sustainable.
- Longer growing seasons- A well-designed produce greenhouse can extend planting and harvest calendars by increasing a farmer's control over climate, irrigation, and heat. With more capability resulting in more product, an extended growing season can boost a farm's profit margin.
- Control heating and cooling temperatures- Greenhouse heating and cooling systems are designed based on your geographic location and your crop’s specific needs. Separate zones can be established in the greenhouse for both cool crops and warm crops to thrive. Heat can be efficiently delivered for different temperature zones at crop level, around perimeter walls, and placed under gutters for snow melt. In addition to greenhouse heating many greenhouse designs include ventilation equipment, low-energy mist systems, and wet walls evaporative cooling pads and fans to keep airflow moving and adjust temperature and humidity levels.
