Commercial greenhouses

Best practices for managing commercial greenhouses in Alberta.


A greenhouse is a controllable, dynamic system managed for intensive production of high quality, fresh market produce. Greenhouses allows for crop production under diverse conditions. However, greenhouse growers have to manage a number of variables to get maximum sustainable production from their crops, including:

  • air and root zone temperature
  • fertilizer feed
  • growing media
  • plant maintenance

This section provides information on optimizing these variables, to get maximum performance from the crop over the production season.
