One of the most important points a new grower needs to know is that greenhouse vegetable production is very costly. It is costly to establish the greenhouse facility, and additional costs are incurred during the crop production, harvesting, and shipping phases. All of these costs are incurred before any financial return is realized. The cost of establishing the operation will depend on many factors. These factors include the size and number of the greenhouses, type of production system to be used, method of marketing, need for associated facilities such as packing facilities and vehicles, availability of supplies and support services, and amount and quality of labor.
