What we Do

We provide with all kind of services on the greenhouse world.

Heating Transmission Calculation & Design

A transmission calculation is used to establish how much heat is needed to create the ideal climate in your greenhouse. 

The amount of heat required, in combination with the amount of heat available, is then used to draw up a design. The heating system is designed BASED ON THE ISO NORM 86 to obtain the climate which is required for each particular crop. 

In addition to your needs and requirements, this also takes into account local facilities and any heat released from supplementary lighting.

Apart from heating your greenhouse, the heating system can also serve another purpose: Pipe rail heating has been used for years as a means of internal transport. The system works perfectly in combination with pipe rail carriages. In addition to the pipe rail system, the overhead network can also be used for internal transport, acting in this case as a monorail system.

Determination of Irrigation Quantity

Determination of irrigation quantity (volume), frequency, and nutrient requirements start with design principals such as plant density, crop variety, the growing substrate (soil or aggregate), and environmental conditions, including sunlight, temperature, and humidity.

The efficient use of water and nutrients are the most important design parameters for the design of each water technical system. Greenhouse hydroponic cultivation already uses water more efficiently than field-based production systems. However…

…large amounts of water and fertilizers are lost in free-draining hydroponic systems. Water use efficiency can be improved by collecting drain water and reapplying it to the crop. In this way, greenhouse growers can further improve their water use efficiency and consequently become more sustainable producers.

Better growth results can be obtained when the application of water and nutrients is carefully managed, especially in line with energy management practices, such as screening in winter. In these situations applying ‘a little bit extra’ does not lead to better growth results and can even be harmful to the plants. Every irrigation results in a ‘vegetative’ reaction from the plant. It is therefore important to know when and how much water you need to give to ensure optimal crop growth and fruit development.

Recent research has shown that for growers with similar cultivation and greenhouse, there can be tremendous differences in total water and fertilizer use. These differences arise from different attitudes towards root zone management and time, with respect to the growth stage of the crop, when the drain water is first recycled.

Design & Calculation

Based on the selected concept from the idea generation, we start with the initial design and general-lay-out. After this, we collect all relevant information about local conditions and legal environment. This results in the technical specifications of the initial design, design drawings, and technical calculation of the installation.

DETAILED ENGINEERING:  Based on the defined project specifications, a detailed package of working drawings, and a complete list of materials in any language will be provided.

Manufacturing & Delivery

Procurement of the materials, construction of irrigation units, and electrical panels. Preparing materials for transport. Arranging logistics.

We complete this phase of production by performing the necessary tests, on both the tailor-made parts and the materials delivered by manufacturers.

Construction & Project Management

The way of installation can be fully dependent on your wishes to build your future greenhouse, AGROTURN  provides experienced supervisors for local coordination and computer specialists for commissioning the installation.

Training and education of users is also part of this step.
