Greenhouses – Illuminum Greenhouses™ Kenya

Greenhouses

Greenhouse farming is more than just ordering a greenhouse and setting it up on your farm.

This is a partnership to ensure we provide farming solutions to ensure you succeed and grow. When you grow, you buy more greenhouses from us and that allows us to grow as well.

Trust the process

1. Site inspection (pre-site survey)

Before we build your greenhouse, our team will assess the site and check on the land topology, access to the farm, presence of any vegetation which could affect the greenhouse and also collect soil samples for us to perform two tests:

a) Soil Mineral Test

This test shows the mineral composition in your soil and will inform our agronomist on what fertilizer will be suitable for your soil.

b) Soil Pathological Test

This test will show if your soil has any bacterial or fungal infection thatwould affect the production of your crops and will inform our agronomist on what treatments to use to cure the soil.

Once we receive your soil test results, our agronomist will call you to interpret the results for you and email a detailed recommendation report. Based on the size you will have selected, we will share an estimate inclusive of transportation to site to you.

2. Greenhouse Construction

Once we receive your payment, our team will share a delivery schedule with the date we will be on the farm and when the assigned technician to do the installation. Materials are then delivered and construction commences. Once complete, we require you to sign a site completion sheet indicating that the works were completed to your satisfaction.

If your mandate for us was simply greenhouse construction, then our process ends here. However, if you would like us to provide farmer training and support services, our process continues below;

3. Transplanting

Based on the crop you want to grow, our team will deliver the seedlings after land preparation has been completed. We ensure that our agronomist is present during this period to ensure you achieve 100% germination rate.

4. Agronomic Support

We visit our farmers every 2 weeks to train them on how to grow crops inside a greenhouse as well as advise on good agricultural practices that enable you to achieve maximum yields.

5. Market Linkage

It is crucial that our farmers access markets in order to return their investment in greenhouse farming. We have market providers that we have partnered with across the country to provide a market for the crops you grow.

At the moment, we have demand for tomatoes, capsicums and cucumbers. However, based on the location of the farm, we do advise on the crop that has a greater demand in that region.
