Justine Hendricks named new CEO of Farm Credit Canada

As CEO, Mrs. Hendricks will drive forward the corporation’s mandate of supporting the sector by providing financial and advisory services, expanding access to capital and enhancing its products and services.

State of the sector

In Ontario, where the majority of greenhouse operations are located, one of the biggest challenges for fruit and vegetable growers is achieving higher returns to offset increased costs due to rising energy costs and inflation.

Energy saving technologies in greenhouses from a plant viewpoint

Energy is the second largest operating cost for a commercial greenhouse in Canada. In case you are wondering what is the first one, that is the labour. In cold climates energy is used primarily for heating, lighting, dehumidification, CO2 supply and equipment operation.
