Flower farming a force to be reckoned with, thanks to Agrelek

Flower production at this flower farm continues to be affordable, because of the effective use of electricity for the low-cost water-heating system that is used for temperature control in the
greenhouses.

 

When Mr Peter Aitken added two new greenhouses to his nursery, he decided to deviate from his current method of temperature control used in the other greenhouses, and try something different. He decided to install a low-cost electrode water-heating system in the new greenhouses. The system is very effective and considerably more cost-effective.
