“Since we work during the winter, and face humidity that can reach 100% inside the greenhouse, we experience various disease outbreaks. We looked for a solution to take care of botrytis. One that would be non-chemical.
We eventually purchased a DryGair unit to reduce the humidity. It only took the space of a few plants from the two rows in the back, and we didn’t have to change any dimensions of anything, everything just flowed smoothly.
We started using the unit with 85-90% relative humidity, and we immediately saw humidity reduce to 70-75%. It stayed like this all night. Of course, when we reduce the humidity in the greenhouse, we can also reduce the amount of pesticides we use.
Usually, when you arrive in the morning, you see that the leaves are wet. With DryGair, the plants were totally dry. We saw that when we operated the unit, there were the same levels of humidity and temperature in every point in the greenhouse. It improved the quality of our work and the time at which we can start working.
When we did the experiment, we didn’t expect to get a 25% yield increase, we did it trying to control botrytis. Which we did.”
