What is a glasshouse in greenhouse farming?
In this type of greenhouse farming, glass is used as a glazing material. This is the first method and also the oldest among all types of greenhouse structures. With the help of a wooden or metal frame, glass panels are fitted. These can be of any size or shape and it is pretty good for cultivation during winter. But as the day temperature increases in summer, it will not be useful for the cultivation in summer. Disadvantages of glasshouse are high initial cost, difficulty in construction and frequent damage of glass panels by strong winds. In hilly regions, only a few such glasshouse structures are found for research.
