To make vegetable production growing systems work in a greenhouse in the Philippines, it is important to manage the balance between light and heat inside the greenhouse. Adding shade nets over the grow areas is a must, but how do you know if it’s enough?
In the Philippines it’s either long hot or short wet season so irrigating your crops, seedlings, or vegetable beds becomes important during the longer hot dry season. Learn about plant transpiration and humidity and how to assemble overhead sprinkler system or low-pressure misting system.
