SuprimAir greenhouse in the desert for Pure Harvest

  • SuprimAir greenhouse in the desert for Pure Harvest

For the year-round production of fresh and healthy vegetables in a desert environment you need a Certhon horticulture solution. Pure Harvest Smart Farms is the first to implement the SuprimAir technology in the Gulf Region. This year the SuprimAir technology of Certhon will be operational in Abu Dhabi.

Top quality produce, but locally grown, to Dutch standards. With the use of this novel semi-closed greenhouse technology, the produce will become year-round available for the local market in UAE. The SuprimAir technology of Certhon has a large set of advantages. The state of the art SuprimAir technology, a climate system to control all growing conditions for year-round production, has proven its advantage in many climates. By the use of conditioned air and over-pressure there is always a perfect climate to grow vegetables. The over-pressure ensures insects and bugs are banned. Use of pesticides is not needed, making a healthier and clean product than elsewhere. The SuprimAir performances throughout the whole year disregarding outside temperatures, not only temperature but also humidity levels are controlled inside by a unique and fully computer controlled combination of efficient ventilation and cooling. In this perfectly balanced situation the yearly yield to a traditional greenhouse can easily increase with +15%. Local produce becomes available in the summer months for the UAE, with the same uniform quality as any other season. Using hydroponic drip-irrigation, with full re-use of irrigation water, the water usage is limited to the minimal.
