Greenhouse planting technology is an important part of modern facility agriculture. It can effectively control the internal environment of greenhouses, such as lighting, watering, preventing plant diseases and insect pests and so on.
Under greenhouse conditions, it can also decrease the harmful effect from the environment; reduce the risk of farmers; improve the quality and production of agricultural products and ensure the stability of the output.
Stable output and high quality is the key to open the market for agricultural products.
