Ventilation of agricultural structures

Ventilation is required to control temperature and humidity and to remove gases that are harmful to both animals and humans.

Properly designed and installed fans, inlets and controls minimize energy losses and ensure an environment that optimizes growth and comfort. Beneficial ventilation practices may also reduce the impacts that noise, dust and odour cause on neighbours. Management of heat, humidity and gases within greenhouses and other crop production facilities is also key to maximizing plant growth.
