New polyhouse technology for vegetables and fruits

New Delhi: Dr.

According to Professor Hiranai, the farmers have about 15 or more crop related problems related to overheating, insufficient cold, heat, rain, wind and inadequate transmission, as well as insect pests in India. Climate change is currently reducing the plant’s immune system to insects and pests, and this loss could increase exponentially. These problems can be overcome to some extent by conventional polishes. To reduce the effects of climate change and pest infestation, conventional polyheses have a fixed roof. However, sometimes there are still damage due to the high temperatures, and the insulation caused by insufficient light (early morning). In addition, inadequate CO2, drainage and water stress levels are at risk. The combination of open field conditions and common polyhouse conditions is a stronger way to cope with climate change and connects to future problems.

Dr. Harish Hiranai said that the CMERI Extension Center, Ludyana, is installing “reversible roof poly house technology”. This all-weather configuration will have an automatic reversible roof that operates on the conditional database based on weather conditions and crop requirements using PLC software. This continued development will enable farmers to produce seasonal and seasonal crops that can produce high yields, stable and high shelf life by creating good indoor climate conditions compared to conventional open field caves and naturally breathable poly houses. It is an effective technology for organic farming.

According to Mr. Jagdis Manikrao, a senior scientist who led the research team on the development of this technology, the amount of sunlight, quality and durability, water stress, humidity, carbon dioxide levels and crop and soil temperature can be reversed. Dr. Pradep Rajan, Senior Chief Scientist, Head, Agricultural Machinery and Real Estate, explained that this construction is being discussed in collaboration with CSIR-IHBT, Palfur and Crop Autonomous Integration of Polytechnics. Climate requirements and providing a user-friendly interface for IoT-enabled farmers.

According to the director, there is a lack of scientific experimental data on the benefits of the new polyhouse system. We can increase the productivity by obtaining the necessary scientific information and analyzing the results by installing natural ventilation polyheads and perforated roofs side by side. The facility will serve as a demonstration field for farmers.
