Greenhouse

A greenhouse Or Net-House is a structural building with different types of galvanized covering materials, such as plastic-roof or Shade-net or Insect-proof net.
The modern growers moving into indoor cultivation enable them to grow all- season excellent products. In the tropical area we need to protect the vegetable especially from the rain and insects enable us to get higher quality and higher yield with minimum labor and mechanization.
Velox  has developed the greenhouse concept to fit  the tropical zone structure with better ventilation, cheaper and affordable.

Why do we need Greenhouse or Net-House in Nigeria?

  • Yields are 7 to 10 times higher than outdoor.
  • Quality vegetables.
  • No rain or wind effect.
  • Insects proof and the use of pesticides is significant less.
  • With growing media there are no soil diseases.
  • Crop maturity is non-seasonal and faster
  • Water requirement is very minimal
  • Nutrients are directly available to plants
  • Less labour is required because no plough or harrowing is required and it fit women and youth handling.
  • Fruit and veggies have improved flavor and texture and shelf-life.

INCREASED CONTROL OVER GROWING CONDITIONS PROVIDE THE BEST POSSIBLE ENVIRONMENT FOR PLANTS, LEADING TO BETTER QUALITY PRODUCE AND HIGHER YIELDS

NET-HOUSE

The vegetables Net-House meant especially for dryer area when the annum rainfall is less than 800mm per annum (the north of the country)
The Net-House has the same advantages as the greenhouse and it far cheaper than the Greenhouse but it is not fitting the rainy area in Nigeria.
Net-House is also an excellent structure for nurseries hence for vegetables, coco, palm trees and others
The net house can come with insect proof net for vegetables or Shade-net for nurseries.
Net-House can come with overhead irrigation for nurseries and drip irrigation for vegetables.
