Now that Victoria Day weekend has come and gone, many floriculture greenhouses find themselves with a rare period of empty compartments or benches before fall crops go in. Similarly, many vegetable greenhouses extending their growing period are facing their first crop cleanout. Now is the perfect time to consider a thorough cleaning of your greenhouse to prevent pest issues going forward into the new crop. But this can seem like a daunting task.
OMAFRA and the Vineland Research and Innovation Centre have produced a how-to video on greenhouse cleanout and disinfection that can help you know where to start.
