This book is very helpful if you are interested in owning a greenhouse for commercial/professional or personal reasons. It covers every subject you can imagine with regards to greenhouse operations, so this is a great guide or reference to have in your library. This book is a bit dry and the author can be repetitive, but if you have any greenhouse question whatsoever, you can trust that the author discussed it in at least 3 places within the book.
Solid information for commercial operation protocols, options for system layout. Useful tables and charts explaining lighting, fertilizers, soils, and oh so much more. Good value for the motivated grower wanting to better their craft and crop quality.
This book is a very good reference material for people wanting to know everything about operating and managing a greenhouse. The glossary is a little lacking but overall a good book.
Is an practical way to operating a greenhouse, interessant but is so technical, now I am studying it because I need this book...
If your serious about growing it tells you every thing you could possibly want to know. Im really learning alot.
