Greenhouse transplant production has replaced outdoor plant beds and has become the standard practice, especially for flue-cured tobacco farmers in the southeastern United States.
An advantage of greenhouse transplant production over outdoor plant beds is increased uniformity of transplants. Tobacco seedlings are grown in float-system greenhouses. A subirrigation system is used to keep the bottom of the trays in contact with the water or nutrient solution.
For superior results, we offer the Decloet structure, a standard 35-foot wide greenhouse popular with tobacco producers in Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
Features include a straight side wall, reinforced bows and a center ridge for strength.
If you need help with an existing tobacco greenhouse that needs rebuilding or relocation, contact us today and we’ll be glad to help. We also have expertise in overcoming space limitations to set you up with the structure you need for a successful growing season.
Of course, we will also help you get set up with all of the necessary equipment, supplies and accessories for a successful yield, including soil and trays, seeders, transplanter equipment, heaters and ventilation and much more.
