Greenhouses

VegInnov offers translucent closed or semi-open structures made of glass or plastic, supported by a metal structure and equipped for agricultural production in Africa. They aim to improve crop yields by mitigating climate extremes or even by controlling the microclimate around crops and protecting them from harsh weather (rain, hail) and insect pests.
