Greenhouse growers produce a product with very low margins. Because of this, many do everything possible to avoid using expensive and harmful chemicals on their plants. Chemicals are not good for their bottom line and they have learned that customers do not like them. So, to control pests that can quickly overrun a warm moist environment filled with young tender plants, growers rely on cultural practices and biological processes to keep their pests away. With small modifications, you too can use many of their practices to keep your garden “pest free organically”.
