Turkish vegetable seed producer Hasel Tarim recently completed construction on a 7,200 square metre retractable roof A-Frame rafter greenhouse.

According to the global fruit and vegetable news website FreshPlaza:

 

"The new greenhouse features a computer controlled double layer retractable roof with roll up walls. The upper retractable greenhouse roof is a transparent poly fabric to help increase temperatures in the winter while providing protection to crops from rain and hail. The lower retractable roof layer is a white poly fabric which acts as an energy curtain in the winter and provides cooling like a cloud in the summer."

 

The company is currently using the greenhouse to grow tomatoes and cucumbers.
