Controllable and Steerable Vegetable Production

“The first year of growing with the LED lights, we didn’t have any dehumidifiers, though we already knew we would need them. To be honest, it was a nightmare. We managed to grow, but it was very hard. The climate was very irregular, because of the enormous amount of transpiration from the plants, under the LEDs.

That’s where DryGair came into the picture. The year after, we installed the DryGair units. It was a whole different world – steerable, controllable, beautiful plants, beautiful products.

After seeing the results, we took the final step and installed DryGair in almost all of our greenhouses, including those without the lighting. Today, we have a total of 39 DG-12 units in our facility.”

Better Quality, Higher Yields

“With DryGair, we have a much more even climate. That’s one of the things I’m looking for – an even climate and even transpiration during the whole period of the day, when the plant grows.

Overall, it’s clear that you get a healthier and more even crop. If you have a wish for the way you want your crop to be, it’s easier to get there with DryGair. You have better control over your environment, you can keep your temperature and humidity more even. This all creates a better balance in your plants.

Let’s take cherry tomatoes for example. When growing seasonally, in an unlit greenhouse, I was at my maximum at 36 kg per square meter. That is really high in Norway. However, I’ve now increased that by 20-30%, with the DryGair units installed.”

30-60% Energy Savings

“Growing tomatoes with DryGair immediately reduces your costs, simply because you can close your ventilation frames on the roof of the glasshouse. The DryGair units take care of the dehumidification.

Without dehumidification, as much as 60% of your total heating costs are actually for controlling humidity. So, right away, you have huge cost savings when using DryGair.

I always say, the actual savings depend on what you grow, where you grow, and how you grow it. But it’s certainly between 30%-60% in Scandinavia.”

Optimal CO2 Retention

“Of course, the energy savings and environmental impact are great. But you get a whole range of other benefits as well.

For example, it’s much easier to keep a high concentration of CO2 in your greenhouse. That leads to higher production and healthier plants. When you vent, you let the CO2 out, which is inefficient. Especially if you pay for CO2, it’s a huge disadvantage to let it out through your roof.”
