heat, dehum, and lighting will be necessary. the goal of the greenhouse is to keep you within a set of ideal parameters so the output is the same everyday/cycle of the year

:wave:Hey Adam, Happy Halloween! Thanks for hosting this really informative AMA!:slightly_smiling_face:

How does AgraTech differ from the competition out there? Do you offer consulting services?

What is the difference between Polycarbonate & Glass?

Do you hire greenhouse contractors who have worked for other companies? How many members are on your team?

Thanks again!

Happy chatting and growing!

The truss design of the Solar Light’s purpose is to collect condensation from the covering and prevent it from falling on to crops and ground. Condensation on Cannabis flowers lead to disease, quality loss, and culling. here is a link http://agratech.com/greenhouses-commercial-greenhouse-manufacturer.html?id=49

Hey Adam! Thanks for hosting the AMA. I saw earlier you said something about concrete floors being a tool in sanitation. Do you ever use epoxies or coatings for the floors of your greenhouses? If so, which kind?

Thanks,
Mike

Hello @adam.pound,

I have a question you may have information on but may be more of a grower issue,

Do you think Greenhouse grown Cannabis is on par with indoor grown?

I ask because there is regularly a price gap between greenhouse and indoor craft cannabis.

Agra Tech was ranked #1 for 7 years by a leading publication who sent industry surveys out to growers and users just like you. the survey determined for 7 years we were #1 in Innovation, Knowledge, Service, ROI, Reputation. We are very proud of this and on a daily basis we consult on efficiency and energy, we take a Plantcentric approach to your project. we do not sell package 37, we sell you a Kareenabis420 package.

plastic vs glass is certainly a debate. we believe it has its place in Holland where there is minimal sunlight but for most of the US we get much highly light levels

we have a 47 year old network of builders we introduce a customer to 3 or 4 who we feel can best service you.
