Know The Benefits Of Protected Cultivation

by aditya abhishek

Climate uncertainty & population growth posses significant challenges to global food security, hence protected cultivation offers an efficient solution for growing crops in controlled environments.


Cultivating crop in a polyhouse or greenhouse gives ability to control the growing environment such as extreme temperatures, heavy rain, hailstorms, and strong winds.

Ideal Environment

Farmers can create optimal conditions for their crops, regardless of the external climate by regulating temperature, humidity, etc. 

Growing Season

Growing season can be extended beyond the limitations of traditional outdoor farming. Hince winter season crops such as lettuce, cabbage, etc. can be grown in summer too. 

Pests & Diseases

Protected cultivation provides physical barrier against pests and diseases, reducing the need for chemical pesticides. It helps in minimizing crop damage. 


Precise application of water directly to the root zone of plants ensure minimal evaporation and runoff. Hence it increases water use efficiency & helps to reduce water loss. 

Use Of Chemicals

Due to better pest management, crop protection & nutrient delivery system in polyhouse dependency on chemical fertilizers and pesticides reduces.


Controlled environment of greenhouses provides crops with optimal growing conditions, which leads to improved quality and higher yields.
