Challenges of Commercial Greenhouse Businesses


Greenhouses need precise tracking of plants through every phase of growth to ensure supply meets demand. Without real-time greenhouse remote monitoring, inaccurate inventory leads to oversupply waste or underproduction that misses sales opportunities.

Producing the right volumes is an ongoing challenge. Greenhouses face surpluses or shortages if production cycles don’t match sales forecasts. The right greenhouse grower management software integrates sales data to plan cropping and prevent overages.

From planting to harvesting, greenhouse operations involve many interconnected tasks and teams. Centralizing task scheduling, labor allocation, and resource management in one system streamlines these complex greenhouse processes and workflows.


Many greenhouses rely on just a few major buyers, missing opportunities in retail, eCommerce, and direct sales. An integrated system opens new markets while ensuring inventory meets the demand across all channels.

To be profitable, greenhouse managers need visibility into costs, yields, sales trends, and more. Data-driven insights allow them to identify opportunities, adapt to market changes, and plan production strategically.

Monitoring and optimizing water, energy, and soil nutrients are key for cost control and environmental sustainability. The right tools analyze real-time usage to reduce waste, better greenhouse space utilization and enhance eco-friendly practices.
