Growing cucumbers and tomatoes in greenhouses is very demanding and challenging. The plants require the right climatic conditions. The temperature must be just right, conditions may not be too moist or too dry, adequate sunlight must be available and the greenhouse must be adequately ventilated. The plants also require an adequate supply of water and nutrients. The plants will only produce a good yield if all of these growing conditions are satisfied.
Healthy and tasty products
Our cucumbers and tomatoes are healthy thirst-quenchers and low-calorie snacks. Cucumbers should be eaten with the skin attached as it is deliciously crunchy and most of the fruit’s nutrients are located just under the skin. Cucumbers contain vitamin B6, which plays an important role in maintaining a healthy nervous system and keeping your energy levels high.
Our tomatoes also taste deliciously fresh and juicy. They are rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene. Both of these substances are antioxidants which, in combination with other nutrients, protect the body against tissue damage and ageing. Tomatoes are also rich in food fibres and have a relatively high protein content. In addition, tomatoes contain potassium, which helps to maintain your blood pressure at a healthy level.
Optimising climatic conditions in the greenhouse
We use a modern ventilation system in the greenhouse. This system allows us to remove moisture in a controlled manner without directly affecting the temperature in the greenhouse. In addition, this modern ventilation system has a further function, which is to cool the geothermal energy source. Energy screens also retain warmth in the greenhouse.
