As you may well know, there are several different ways to plant seeds, although some are better than others.

We believe that the best way to plant seeds, (bestdefined here as the highest probability of getting the healthiest seedlings possible that are easily and efficiently transplanted) is planting seeds using plug trays.

WANT TO GROW MORE? BUILD A GREENHOUSE!

Greenhouses are a great way to create a controlled growing environment that will help increase productivity while also extending growing periods. This is the first post/video documenting Bright Agrotech’s new greenhouse build.

WHY USE A GREENHOUSE?

Building (or buying) a greenhouse, makes sense for folks growing their own food, flowers or other plants. A few of these reasons include:

Providing shelter for your crops to protect them from hail, snow, high winds, or even over saturation (too much rain – yes there is such a thing!)Better control over pests and pest management (this includes those pesky rodents, too)Extending the growing season up to a few months or even enabling 12-month productionCloser control over other growing variables which leads to greater yields and more efficient production.
