Ulma Agricola has presented the new High Tunnel greenhouse. This new greenhouse has been designed based on the rest and problems raised by future users of these infrastructures in the African containment.
The new tunnel-type greenhouse model called High Tunnel has some special characteristics since it is a product suitable for installation in tropical climates, without crop loads and need protection against to wind, rain and diseases. High Tunnel has standard dimensions of 8 meters wide and more than 4 meters high with modulation of 3.5 meters between arches, which allows obtaining a large interior volume free for cultivation and although the upper part is usually covered with plastic, the fronts can be covered in both mesh and plastic and have roll-up side ventilation.
This new greenhouse allows having a protected space for cultivation at an affordable cost for rural communities, thus promoting socio-economic development and food self-sufficiency.
