Greenhouse Prices And Cost: Greenhouse Investment In Kenya FAQs

1.What is greenhouse farming?

It is the growing of crops under a shelter covered by a transparent glass or translucent UV-treated polythene. This environment protects the crop from the vulgarities of weather, pests and diseases. It eases crop husbandry.

2. What is the most profitable crop to grow in a greenhouse?

Roses for export are the most lucrative crop to grow in a greenhouse in Kenya

3. Is greenhouse farming profitable in Kenya?

Greenhouse farming consists of self-pollinating crops such as greenhouse indeterminate tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers, and also insect-pollinated crops like strawberries. These are high-value crops that require intense attention and protection from pestilences such as; hail, drought, pest, disease, storms, and cold. They are moderately profitable.
We design none food metallic greenhouses for flowers such as; roses, carnations, and chrysanthemums, and herbs such as geraniums, mint, basil, rosemary, and lemongrass. These crops are highly profitable and are grown by successful greenhouse farmers in Kenya.

4. How do you build a greenhouse?

Our greenhouse materials consist of
i. Galvanised metallic greenhouse structure made to withstand strong winds and storms. Every structure is tailored to the farmer’s specific needs according to crop type or climatic zone.
ii. We pay keen attention to the light requirement of each crop when choosing what polythene type to use. A farmer growing red roses will have it under a yellow polythene cover, while a farmer growing bicolor, multi-color flowers, herbs, or vegetable fruit crops will have clear polythene over the crop.
Greenhouse farming in cool highland zones will have a tunnel-type greenhouse constructed because it conserves heat, while those in the warm lowlands will have a vented type greenhouse that allows better cooling.
Our sizes range are small, medium and large
