Due to the fact that many chemical applications are prohibited and that insects have gained resistance to insecticides, Agra Tech has engineered insect screen systems for its roof vents.
The screen system is uses fixed insect screen with nylon brushes to allow the racks to pass through but keep the bugs out.
The screen fabric itself is constructed of UV-stabilized acrylic and polyethylene materials, offering between 4-8 years of protection. Coupling the insect screen with Agra Tech’s smooth running roof vents helps keep insects out of the greenhouse environment.
(The screen is sold separately).
“The team at Agra Tech met the challenge and did a great job from start to finish,” Thomson said. “The completed house system is state of the art with fully integrated & automated controls for all operational aspects; fan speeds, lighting, cooling system, shade curtains and includes a PC based program interface that provides for monitoring system performance and set up. When small build issues arose, as they will, the Agra team stepped up and responded quickly to resolve the challenge. The new greenhouse represents a significant jump forward for Lundberg Family Farms not only in the overall system but also in the Head House space that was custom created for our own team. Agra Tech and Ag-Con worked in conjunction with our General Contractor to tie in a custom head house built by our general with a state of the art Green House, they did an excellent job.
