Gerrit, together with SchermNed, believes that there is still a lot to be gained from screen installations in foil greenhouses. "You can do a lot more with them than growers often do at present. If growers look beyond the sharpness of light screening, they can make a good return on a screen installation. I am convinced of that. For example, a screen can also help cool the greenhouse climate slightly and extend the season. This allows growers to grow products of even better quality."
During the HortiContact last month in Gorinchem, Visitors of the exhibition could participate in our giveaway: 'guess the number of wire-guided blocks'. Every day a prize winner was announced. Last week we were able to hand out the softshell jackets with company logo to the winners. We wish the winners a lot of fun with our luxury jackets!
With the explosive rise in energy prices and winter just around the corner, these are challenging times for entrepreneurs in greenhouse horticulture. At the moment, it's all about being able to save energy. As a result, energy screens will be higher on the investment agenda in the coming period. The purchase of a second energy screen offers possibilities with regard to energy saving and "The New Cultivation". With a second energy screen, an extra high energy saving can be achieved in conjunction with optimal production.
