Polyhouse is a building made from a transparent material, polythene. In which plants can be grown under a controlled climate. The structure and size vary as required. A poly house is a polythene house, in which the interior becomes warm on sunlight exposure and inhibits the greenhouse gases to escape out. In cold weather, the internal temperature is maintained manually for the plants.
Polyhouse is a system of secured cultivation in agriculture. Polythene plastic is used to cover the poly house structure. Protected cultivation under the poly house is gaining importance these days. It proves to be convenient for the farmers. Off-season cultivation of vegetables enables the farmers to have a better price realization.
Telangana Government through the department of horticulture launched a scheme known as Poly house subsidy Scheme/greenhouse subsidy Scheme in the year 2014-2015. This scheme introduces a 75% subsidy to promote the cultivation of high-value vegetables and flowers. In 2016-2017 the subsidy enhanced up to 95% for SC/ST farmers.
