Abstract:

Green house is a polyhouse or plastic house covered with polythene sheet. It is light in weight, easy to handle and cheaper in cost, resistant to hail, frost, over heating as well as very suitable for off-season vegetables cultivation. Vegetable growers can substantially increase their income by cultivation of vegetable under protected condition during off season as the vegetables produced during their normal season generally they do not found good returns due to availability of these vegetables in the market. Green house cultivation as well as other modes of controlled environment cultivation has been evolved to create favorable micro climate, which favor’s the crop production could be possible through out the year or part of the year as required. Low cost and naturally ventilated polyhouse is very suitable and most profitable technology for subtropics or is plains of India. Greenhouse is the very effective to raise the off-season nursery, off season vegetable high value crop for long duration i.e. Tomato, Capsicum, Cucumber, Bottlegaurd, early Cauliflower, Coriander, Cabbage etc. Apart from this insect proof net houses provide virus & insect free ideal conditions for production of those vegetable mainly during the rainy season. Various research result have shown that by adopting protected cultivation productivity of vegetable crops can be increased by 3 to 5 times as compared to open environment. This aspect needs to be extensively exploited in India and MP as has been done elsewhere in the world
