Abstract views: 69 / PDF downloads: 192
Due to ever-increasing population, massive urbanization and rapid industrialization, it is becoming challenging to feed the millions in our country. Though, population is increasing at a faster pace; agricultural land capacity can increase by 2% only. As per an estimate, 342 million tonnes of vegetables will be required to cater the demand of consumers by the year 2050. Therefore, to improve the productivity and cropping intensity, protected cultivation of vegetables seems a promising proposition. Protected cultivation is taken up in special structures known as greenhouses. Depending on the covering material, different terminologies have been used in the context of greenhouse structures for instances, glasshouse, polyhouse, shade house, net house, etc.
