Greenhouses are frames of an inflated structure with walls and roofs covered with a transparent material in which crops are grown under controlled environmental conditions. A greenhouse (also called a glasshouse) is used for growing crops and plants that require regulated climatic conditions.
Essentially, the structure of a greenhouse is made to shield delicate or out-of-season plants from extreme cold or heat. These structures, which can be anything from little sheds to enormous buildings, are frequently used as production centres for vegetables, flowers, or fruits in commercial greenhouses. Agricultural production has greatly benefited from greenhouse technology. It is a technology that provides a unique farming method that enables increased high-quality production all year round.

Benefits of a Greenhouse
- Greenhouses enable year-long farming.

- Protection from plant and animal pests.
- It allows farmers to control factors such as the amount of sunlight that comes in, the temperature, air moisture, and soil type.
- The farmer can decide which condition is best based on the individual needs of each plant.
- Having control over such key growth factors facilitates an optimal growing environment for plants and results in healthier plants.
