Greenhouses are an important tool for many growers, from hobby gardeners to larger farming operations. While traditional gardening can be great for backyards and certain hardy crops, greenhouses provide numerous advantages over traditional farming and gardening. These advantages are largely the result of greenhouses enabling growers to create an enclosed micro-climate for their plants, and […]

Slip Tube’s customizable steel-framed sheds and shelters offer several distinct advantages over wood shelters and other permanent structures. No matter what industry you’re in, Slip Tube has a cost-effective structure that can serve your needs.
Light deprivation systems are crucial for many greenhouse operations. Artificially manipulating the day and night cycle in your greenhouse space can encourage crops to flower several times in a year, rather than just in a single season, leading to increased crop yields, more manageable harvests, and a more regular source of income.
Light deprivation systems are an important component of many greenhouse setups. Plant growth and flowering cycles are strongly influenced by seasonal light levels, and greenhouse growers have perfected techniques for manipulating those natural cycles through the use of artificial UV lighting and artificial light deprivation.
