Traditional farming practices are no longer sufficient to meet the growing demand for food. With the world’s population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, farmers must produce more food than ever before. However, traditional farming methods have several limitations. For instance, they are susceptible to weather changes and pests, which can lead to reduced yields. Moreover, traditional farming practices require large tracts of land, which is becoming scarce due to urbanization and industrialization. As a result, there is a need for modern agricultural practices that can produce more food using fewer resources.

Necessity of polyhouse:

Polyhouses, also known as greenhouses, are structures made of materials like polyethene that allow farmers to create a controlled environment for their crops. They are becoming increasingly popular among farmers due to their many benefits. Here are some of the reasons why a polyhouse might be necessary:

  1. Protection from extreme weather conditions: One of the main reasons why polyhouses are necessary is to protect crops from extreme weather conditions. Heavy rain, hail, and strong winds can damage crops, and prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can negatively impact plant growth. Polyhouses protect from these conditions and help maintain a consistent climate for the plants to grow in.
  2. Pest and disease control: Polyhouses provide a barrier that can help keep pests and diseases at bay. This is particularly important for crops that are vulnerable to certain pests or diseases. With a polyhouse, farmers can create an environment that is less hospitable to these threats and reduce the likelihood of crop damage or loss.
  3. Increased crop yield: Polyhouses allow farmers to control various factors that affect plant growth, such as temperature, humidity, and light. By creating an optimal environment for the plants, farmers can increase the yield of their crops. This can lead to higher profits and a more sustainable business model.
  4. Extended growing season: Polyhouses can extend the growing season for crops by protecting them from the harsh outdoor environment. This means that farmers can grow crops all year round, which can be particularly beneficial in areas with short growing seasons.
  5. Efficient use of resources: Polyhouses allow farmers to use resources like water and fertilizers more efficiently. By controlling the environment, farmers can reduce the amount of water and fertilizer needed to grow their crops, saving money and reducing environmental impact.
  6. Higher-quality crops: By controlling the growing environment, polyhouses can produce higher-quality crops. This is particularly important for crops sensitive to temperature or humidity changes. Farmers can produce more uniform crops with a higher market value by maintaining a consistent environment.
  7. More sustainable farming: Polyhouses can be part of a more sustainable farming model. By using fewer resources and producing higher yields, farmers can reduce their environmental impact and improve the sustainability of their operations. Additionally, polyhouses can help protect against climate change by providing a more stable environment for crops to grow in.

In conclusion, polyhouses are an essential tool for modern farmers looking to improve the efficiency and sustainability of their operations. By providing protection from extreme weather conditions, pests and diseases and creating an optimal growing environment, polyhouses can increase crop yield, quality, and profitability. Additionally, they can be part of a more sustainable farming model that uses resources more efficiently and reduces.


How to maintain a polyhouse:

A polyhouse is a structure made of transparent material that is used to grow plants and crops in a controlled environment. It is an excellent way to protect plants from harsh weather conditions, pests, and diseases while providing optimal growing conditions. Proper maintenance of a polyhouse is essential to ensure the best possible growth and yield of crops. In this article, we will discuss step-by-step how to maintain a polyhouse.


Step 1: Clean the polyhouse regularly:

The first step in maintaining a polyhouse is to clean it regularly. Remove any debris, such as dead leaves, from the floor and surrounding areas. Clean the walls, roof, and gutters to remove any dirt, dust, or algae. This will help prevent the growth of pests and diseases and keep the environment healthy for the plants.


Step 2: Control the temperature:

Temperature control is an essential factor in the maintenance of a polyhouse. In hot weather, it is essential to provide proper ventilation to prevent the temperature inside the polyhouse from rising too high. In cold weather, heating systems must be used to suit the temperature. Proper temperature control will help ensure optimal plant growth.


Step 3: Manage humidity levels:

Humidity is another critical factor in maintaining a polyhouse. High humidity can lead to the growth of moulds and fungi, which can harm the plants. Proper ventilation and air circulation can help to manage humidity levels. Installing a dehumidifier can also be an effective way to control humidity.


Step 4: Water and fertilize the plants:

Proper watering and fertilization are essential for the healthy growth of plants in a polyhouse. Water the plants regularly and ensure they get the right amount of nutrients. Use organic fertilizers or slow-release fertilizers to provide the necessary nutrients to the plants.


Step 5: Manage pests and diseases:

Pests and diseases can quickly spread in a polyhouse, so it is essential to monitor and manage them carefully. Regularly inspect the plants for signs of pests or diseases, such as yellowing leaves or spots. To control pests, use organic pest control methods, such as natural predators or insecticidal soaps. If diseases are detected, remove infected plants immediately to prevent the spread of the disease.


Step 6: Prune the plants:

Pruning is essential to maintaining the plants’ health in a polyhouse. Regular pruning helps to remove dead or diseased plant material, promote healthy growth, and control the size and shape of the plants. Use clean, sharp pruning tools to avoid damaging the plants.


Step 7: Monitor the pH levels:

The pH level of the soil can have a significant impact on plant growth. It is essential to regularly monitor the soil’s pH levels in the polyhouse. Adjust the pH level with the appropriate soil amendments if it is too high or too low.


Step 8: Maintain the irrigation system:

The irrigation system is critical to maintaining the health of the plants in a polyhouse. Check the irrigation system regularly to ensure that it is working correctly. Clean the system to remove any dirt or debris that may be blocking the pipes or emitters. Replace any damaged or worn-out parts of the irrigation system.


Step 9: Check for structural damage:

Inspect the polyhouse regularly for any signs of structural damage, such as cracks or leaks. Repair any damage immediately to prevent further damage to the polyhouse and ensure the safety of the plants.


Step 10: Keep records:

Keeping records of the maintenance activities, plant growth, and yield is essential to improve the management of a polyhouse. Keep track of watering and fertilizing schedules, pest and disease control measures, and temperature and humidity levels. Use this information to make adjustments and improve the maintenance of the polyhouse.


Types of Polyhouse Covering Materials:

There are several types of materials commonly used for covering polyhouses. Here are some of the main types:

  1. Polyethylene Film: Polyethylene (PE) film is a popular choice for polyhouse covering due to its affordability, flexibility, and ease of installation. It comes in different thicknesses and qualities, offering varying levels of light transmission and durability. PE film is lightweight, UV-stabilized to resist degradation from sunlight, and provides insulation for temperature control.
  2. Polycarbonate Sheets: Polycarbonate (PC) sheets are known for their excellent durability and impact resistance. They offer high light transmission, often around 90%, making them ideal for maximizing sunlight in polyhouses. PC sheets are available in different thicknesses and structures, such as multi-wall or corrugated sheets, and they provide good insulation properties for temperature regulation.
  3. Acrylic Sheets: Acrylic sheets, also known as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), are transparent and provide high light transmission similar to Glass. They have good UV resistance, which protects plants from harmful radiation. Acrylic sheets are lightweight, durable, and can be easily molded into various shapes. However, they may require additional insulation to retain heat effectively.
  4. Glass: Glass has been a traditional choice for polyhouse covering. Poly house subsidy, It offers excellent clarity and light transmission, allowing maximum sunlight into the structure. Glass provides durability and longevity but is heavier and more expensive than other materials. It requires a strong frame to support its weight and can break if not handled carefully.
  5. Fiberglass Panels: Fiberglass panels consist of reinforced plastic with embedded glass fibers. They provide good light transmission, insulation, and durability. Fiberglass panels are lightweight and resistant to impact, making them suitable for polyhouse structures. However, prolonged exposure to UV radiation can cause them to become brittle over time.
  6. ETFE Film: Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) film is a transparent, lightweight, and highly durable material. It offers excellent light transmission, similar to Glass, and is known for its self-cleaning properties. ETFE film resists UV radiation, chemicals, and extreme weather conditions. It can also be inflated to create a cushioning effect for improved insulation.

These are some of the main types of polyhouse covering materials used in agriculture. Each material has its own unique properties and benefits, and the choice depends on factors such as cost, climate conditions, crop requirements, and desired performance.

Properties and characteristics of polyhouse covering materials:

Polyhouse covering materials possess different properties and characteristics that impact their performance and suitability for use. Here are some fundamental properties and characteristics of polyhouse covering materials:

  1. Light Transmission: The ability of a covering material to transmit sunlight is crucial for plant growth. Different materials have varying levels of light transmission, which can affect the amount and quality of light reaching the plants. High-light transmission promotes photosynthesis and optimal growth.
  2. UV Stability: Ultraviolet (UV) stability refers to a material’s resistance to degradation caused by UV radiation. UV stability is important as excessive exposure to UV rays can cause deterioration and reduced lifespan of the covering material. UV-stabilized materials protect plants from harmful UV radiation and prevent premature ageing of the covering.
  3. Insulation Properties: The insulation properties of a covering material influence its ability to retain heat within the polyhouse. Good insulation helps maintain optimal temperature levels for plant growth, especially in colder climates. Materials with higher insulation properties minimize heat loss and reduce energy consumption for heating.
  4. Durability: The durability of a covering material determines its resistance to wear, tear, and damage from external factors such as wind, hail, and debris. A durable material can withstand harsh weather conditions and maintain its integrity over time. Durability impacts the lifespan of the covering and reduces the need for frequent replacements.
  5. Transparency and Clarity: Transparency and clarity refer to the material’s ability to allow clear visibility into the polyhouse and transmit light without distortion. High transparency and clarity enable proper plant growth monitoring, facilitate crop inspections, and enhance overall aesthetics.
  6. Flexibility and Ease of Installation: Flexibility and ease of installation are important considerations for covering materials, especially for structures with complex shapes or curved surfaces. Materials that are easy to handle and install save time and labour during the construction process.
  7. Cost-effectiveness: The cost-effectiveness of a covering material encompasses its initial purchase cost, maintenance requirements, and lifespan. Materials that balance cost and performance well provide long-term economic benefits.
  8. Condensation Control: Some covering materials may experience condensation buildup, leading to reduced light transmission and increased disease risks. Materials with anti-condensation properties or coatings help minimize condensation and maintain a favourable microclimate within the polyhouse.
  9. Environmental Impact: The environmental impact of a covering material considers factors such as its production process, recyclability, energy consumption, and carbon footprint. Sustainable and eco-friendly materials reduce the ecological footprint of the polyhouse and align with sustainable agriculture practices.

Understanding these properties and characteristics can aid in selecting the most appropriate covering material for a polyhouse based on specific needs, climate conditions, crop requirements, and budget constraints.
