Kenyan farmers are reaping great harvests and significant profits from using greenhouse farming techniques. Kenya could start enjoying year-round supply of tomatoes, which currently get damaged during the wet seasons, pushing prices through the roof. Growing crops under greenhouses has many advantages, among them the ability to produce huge quantities on a small piece of land and continuous harvesting.

 

The tomatoes have a shelf-life of 21 days compared with 14 for those grown in the open. It takes a shorter period, two months for greenhouse-produced tomatoes to mature, while it takes a minimum of three months with outdoor farming.
