Since two years, YUHUA operates a 2.2 hectare high tech greenhouse operation in Boai county Henan Province. Ever since the start of the commercial project, yields have seen an increase. This year the grower expects a production of 23 kg/m2 for its truss cocktail tomato crop.
The glass greenhouses enables us to harvest during the cold winter, when other Chinese growers with plastic greenhouses are out of business. Especially during the Chinese new year period, We operates at a competitive level.
The greenhouse was built two years ago by Dutch greenhouse builder Prins Group. it was the first commercial glass greenhouse in China. "There were already many glass greenhouses in China, but most of them are for research or demonstration purposes". The entire project was built with imported technology from the Netherlands. Only about 10% material was supplied local companies.
In the greenhouse, truss cocktail tomatoes (38g/fruit) are grownThe first growing season started in November 2015 and in 5 months 17 kg/m2 was harvested. "This year, the growing season is longer than last year, so we expect a higher production with at least 23 kg/m2."
