Growing crops in greenhouses can increase off-season availability of vegetables and improve product quality through better control against damage from pests and weather.
Growing crops in greenhouses can increase off-season availability of vegetables and improve product quality through better control against damage from pests and weather. However, greenhouse cultivation is a labour- and time-intensive way of farming, and requires considerable financial investment. A group of NGOs in Dominica, having joined forces to encourage diversification of the island's agriculture, set out to promote greenhouse cultivation. With support from CTA, they published a practical manual on growing crops in greenhouses, covering all the steps, from construction to marketing the yields. A booklet which will also be useful for neighbouring islands. Greenhouse Manual For Small Farmers NGO Agriculture Diversification Project, 2002. 52 pp. 2002.
