Why is greenhouse ventilation important for an optimal climate?

Written by Ben Peters | Last update: 7-7-2021

Nowadays greenhouses have a good insulation, which results in less natural air movement inside the greenhouse. However, air movement is very important in creating an optimal greenhouse climate. In this article our specialists will explain why greenhouse ventilation is important.

The benefits of greenhouse ventilation

It is very important to maintain the right distribution of air within the greenhouse, in order to keep an equal temperature throughout the entire greenhouse. This way you will prevent differences in crop growth as a result of corners of the greenhouse being too warm or cold. Ventilation towers ensure air movement inside the greenhouse and are important for an optimal greenhouse climate. This is one of the products that contributes to improved greenhouse ventilation and climate. Climate compiters, air and shielding also contribute to this. The ventilation tower is an important air support with the Enbar LVM crop protection technique. A fan is also an essential part of the (Fanmister) air humidification system. By placing more fans in line, equal air movement happens which is ultimately better for the crops.

You can also choose a fan with an air conductor. This creates better pooling which causes air capacity and the speed of the air movement to be preserved over a longer distance and increases velocity.
