How We Grow
OGVG growers utilize the latest advances in hydroponic technology, computerized climate control and integrated pest management in order to ensure that the vegetables you eat are safe, fresh and nutritious.
The controlled greenhouse environment enables producers to grow a uniform crop that minimizes waste and maximizes yield and quality. Ontario greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers are grown in a nutrient-rich water solution, which enables higher yields. Greenhouse growing is efficient and allows Ontario greenhouse growers to yield up to 20 times more produce per acre compared with outdoor agriculture.
Wider Variety of Produce
Because greenhouse produce is grown in a protective environment, fruits and vegetables normally restricted to certain climates, can be grown all over the world!
This also allows for the opportunity to grow new flavours, colours, and textures!
