A greenhouse is constructed of a frame and translucent material that allows the sun’s rays to penetrate and heat the interior providing optimal climatic conditions for the plants to thrive. It shields crops from excess cold or heat and unwanted pests and makes it possible to grow crops year-round. The commonly used framing material is either wood or metal. In our case, as Illuminum greenhouses we use the galvanized steel.
Farming has continuously evolved from the simple methods to modern day use of machinery and other technologies such as greenhouses.
