What is a greenhouse Andino?


The Andean greenhouse has a specific design for eco-Andean Puna region, which creates the right conditions for the development of an orchard, since without it, it is impossible to grow outdoors for most of the year, achieving mitigate low night temperatures, which are most of the year below zero and severe frosts.


Its side walls and the central dividing wall are adobe, to keep the temperature for the cold nights, avoiding frost inside the greenhouse.

The roof is corrugated clear plastic sheets with UV filter, replacing broken polyethylene with high winds, with strips of partial shade to avoid the high temperatures in the growing area.

And an air cool, shaded completely to regulate high daytime temperatures and windows for air circulation to the growing area.
