Medicinal Cannabis Marijuana Hemp
Medicinal Cannabis and Marijuana Hemp greenhouses
Redpath manufacture and distribute commercial crop greenhouses from its factories based in New Zealand and Australia. Medicinal cannabis or marijuana where legal and authorized to grow can achieve substantially improved production levels when grown under controlled environmental conditions.
Redpath use and recommend Duratough greenhouse film for this growing of medicinal marijuana as it has a high P.A.R (Photosynthetic Active radiation) transmittance level.
For propagation purposes the Durashade white shaded greenhouse film is sometimes used where control of light and temperature is needed for the plants early life.
Natural ventilation via full length rack and pinion ridge ventilation is usually selected. Redpath supply these with automatic electric motor/drives complete with contactor switchboxes and limit switch systems. Automatic ridge mounted roof ventilation systems are proven world-wide to provide accurate control of temperature and humidy surrounding the adult plants growing environment and these systems are highly suited to New Zealands conditions.
For sheltered sites or where bio-secuity is paramount an option is to use a Redpath "forced air vented" greenhouse design. These utilise air inlet and extraction fan systems (sometimes with cooling evaporative pads on the inlet side). Redpath has good experience with these systems particularily in its Australian market where temperatures are higher and humidity is relativley low.
Other factors to consider for this crop are Sidewall height, The ability to fit thermal or shading screen systems, Pest exclusion systems across ventilation openings, Crop support systems, Secure entranceways or 'annexes' . Redpath have straight forward solutions for all these items.
Redpath supply and build small or large areas for this application (from 200sqm through to multiple hectares). We manufacture the building, Complete the design engineering, Apply for permits and erect the structures on your site nationwide for a seamless order and supply service.
