Grown In Your Own Backyard The Hydroponics Tomato Greenhouse at Brigham Young University-Idaho is located on the south side of the Benson building. The primary purpose for the on-site greenhouse is not only educational, but it also supplies tomatoes to University’s Food Services. The greenhouse tomatoes are available to the University from January to July, every year. Food Services use an average of 400 to 500 pounds of tomatoes per week. Surprisingly, the greenhouse here on campus can provide at least two-thirds of those tomatoes.

An advanced ventilation system allows proper airflow to the plants, as a generator then creates carbon dioxide, a gas that tomato plants readily need to survive. “The greenhouse provides hands on learning. You get to work with fertilizers and see how increasing and decreasing certain fertilizers affect the plants,” said Chad Blackburn, Hydroponics Greenhouse Manager.

Care such as this, ensures continuous growth. Plants that normally grow in a warm climate are unable to sustain themselves if transported and grown in a colder environment. With the help of a solid, sophisticated greenhouse provides a convenient method of horticultural production. Having a controlled and contained setting, allows plant life to thrive without interruption, a fascinating...
