Improved greenhouse: agro running

Due to the harsh winter conditions of Ladakh, fresh vegetables are quite seasonal and can grown only in open field from May to October. The region remains cut from the rest of the world for almost six mouths during the winter. Thus, the only means of supply for vegetables is being done via plane at astronomical prices.


Hence to meet the demand for green vegetables during the winter at reasonable prices LEHO introduced an innovative construction design to build the Improved Greenhouse that serves as a source of vegetables during the lean season. The innovative IGH design has been found to further enhance the vegetable production as well as the income generation potential of the people.
