AU: Cravo greenhouses venturing into Africa to help improve food production
When asked how the house has performed over the years, Rob commented; "The best thing the house has done for us is protect our crops in the winter from -7C (19F) temperatures, and in the summer from storms. Some of the worst weather included 100 KPH (60 MPH) winds which snapped trees and produced hail the size of cricket or tennis balls! The 70mm ( 2.75") ice balls broke tempered glass in an adjacent house which was designed for 50mm hail at 130 KPH (2" hail at 80 MPH) but we had no damage at all to the Cravo roofs.
The retractable roof house works well for us 12 months a year whereas our glass only gives us optimal conditions during our three month winter. From a maintenance point of view the house has been great! We have had very minimal maintenance over the last 16 years".

2013 has been an exciting year for Cravo. Our retractable roof houses are now being constructed in South Africa and Nigeria for the production of tomatoes, peppers and young vegetable plants with other projects pending. To support the agriculture production industry and increase the visibility of Cravo retractable roof greenhouses in East Africa, Cravo will be exhibiting at the Naivasha Horticultural Fair in Nairobi, Kenya on September 20 - 21, 2013.
