Better control over humidity reduces disease

Active ventilation system cuts heating bill and improves yield

Kevin Connolly, of Ravensdale Nurseries, Ireland, is positive about the AVS units in his existing greenhouse: “This system is well suited to the Irish climate.” An attempt to reduce energy costs, by lowering heating and ventilation, led to higher humidity and a drop in crop growth and fruit quality for Irish cucumber grower, Kevin Connolly, of Ravensdale Nurseries. In 2013 he installed an active ventilation system which solved his cultivation problems and improved crop health.
