Greenhouse materials in Kenya

Wooden greenhouses are mainly constructed using poles that can be bought or provided by the farmer. The poles have to be treated first with a wood preservative or oil before being utilized. Other wooden greenhouse materials include nails, insect net, barbed wire for trellising, cement and sand. Other greenhouse materials include UV treated greenhouse polythene cover and drip irrigation system.

On the other hand, metallic greenhouses may be constructed using pure galvanized steel or coated to prevent the metal from rusting.

The greenhouse has to be well ventilated to prevent suffocation of the crops. Ventilation also ensures there is no buildup of pests and diseases. This is done by erecting side curtains or roll up which is opened during the day when it’s hot and closed in the evening. It is made in such a way that there is a net on the inside to allow air in while at the same time preventing insect pests from getting inside.
