Airstream Innovations Introduces a Greenhouse that Blows Featured

Airstream Innovations offers a whole new concept in greenhouse growing. Airstream Innovations offers a whole new concept in greenhouse growing.

 

It could be the dawning of a new day for agriculture thanks to a fresh kind of greenhouse that is environmentally friendly, economical and allows for growing some of the cleanest food imaginable.

David Chelf is the mind behind Airstream Innovations, creators of a controlled environment structure that he claims will create ideal growing conditions for your plants, including an insect-free environment. It sounds like magic, but the concept is surprisingly simple on this airstream mechanism for greenhouse growing.

Airstream greenhouses are inflated by a steady flow of air. Besides maintaining the building’s structure, the design “creates an ideal growing environment,” according to Chelf, “by providing airflow that’s optimal for plant health.”

His structures are also wind-powered, which allows for lower energy costs. And outside temperatures are not a factor either, as the Airstream system allows growers to either cool or heat the incoming air as needed.

Of course, growers already know that maintaining airflow is important to a grow room. If your plants are too wet, diseases like mold can flourish; if they’re too dry, photosynthesis suffers. Chelf’s design allows for perfect transpiration, which is essential for optimal nutrient uptake from plant roots.

But that’s just the beginning. His structures are also wind-powered, which allows for lower energy costs. And outside temperatures are not a factor either, as the Airstream system allows growers to either cool or heat the incoming air as needed.

While all of the above is already pretty wonderful, perhaps the most advantageous facet of Chelf’s design is that it offers an insect-free environment. The air moving through the structure creates pressure that keeps a breeze blowing through any exhaust or breaches (rips or holes in the fabric) at such a rate that insects can’t enter the environment. That means growers don’t have to do battle with bugs.

“For a quarter of the cost [of other growing structures] you can grow without pesticides, even organic ones,” says Chelf, which is why he describes Airstream Innovations as “an economical way to grow beyond organic.”
