As the stubble-changing period is approaching, and how to ensure the safety of various processes such as agricultural products, processing, and transportation is coming!

Compared with traditional greenhouses, the pests and diseases in modern tomato production greenhouses have been greatly reduced, and the use of pesticides is also decreasing. However, viral diseases are still a headache for growers.

The cause of virus disease is very complicated, it may be the seeds or seedlings, or it may be the virus residue in the environment that infects the plant, and the disease occurs when it encounters suitable water and fertilizer and environment. But in a greenhouse with a high degree of self-control of environment and water and fertilizer, the greater possibility of viral diseases is due to human transmission. When people operate in the greenhouse, they are likely to bring viruses from other environments into the greenhouse.

Regardless of the reason, only by disinfecting the greenhouse can the probability of virus disease be minimized.

Personnel disinfection: 

For the disinfection of greenhouse employees and visitors, changing rooms and disinfection stations are usually arranged at the entrance of the greenhouse to disinfect the hands and feet of the personnel and wear disinfected clothes. To prevent people from entering the greenhouse with foreign viruses.


Disinfection of materials and tools: 

The materials and tools used in the greenhouse need to be disinfected regularly. If the substrate is recycled or soil-grown in the greenhouse, attention should be paid to the substrate and soil disinfection.

Packaging areas, cold rooms, and material storage areas need to be disinfected regularly.
