Situated in Glencoe, Ontario, Canada
In a groundbreaking development poised to reshape the agricultural landscape, Dalsem, a global leader in advanced greenhouse solutions, has embarked on a journey to create an innovative greenhouse complex in Glencoe, Ontario, Canada. This remarkable project, situated on a 120-acre (48-hectare) greenfield site, is set to be a beacon of sustainable farming practices and biosecurity standards in the Controlled Environment Agriculture sector.
Owned by Ontario Plants Propagation, a prominent North American supplier of starter plants for greenhouse growers, the Glencoe site boasts a strategic location in the heart of the Ontario Highway 401 corridor, ensuring seamless connectivity to key growers in both Canada and the United States.
A beacon of sustainable farming
The ambitious development marks the initiation of the first of four planned phases, 13-acre (five-hectare) greenhouse, alongside warehouse and office facilities. This inaugural phase will implement a cutting-edge container growing system and a hybrid LED grow light system, ushering in a new era of crop cultivation efficiency and sustainability.

One of the standout features of this endeavor is the integration of Dalsem's signature X-AIR Semi-Closed System. This innovative system harnesses ambient physical properties to create and maintain an optimal microclimate, ensuring that plants flourish in a perfectly uniform environment. Furthermore, Ontario Plants Propagation is unwavering in its dedication to implementing pioneering biosecurity measures, affirming their commitment to the well-being of their crops and the surrounding ecosystem.
Dalsem's global reputation for reliability &, innovation
The focus on sustainability and biosecurity is set to become increasingly vital in the years ahead, and Dalsem is committed to leading the way in these critical areas. Collaborating closely with Ontario Plants Propagation, Dalsem is enthusiastic about advancing the Glencoe project to the next stages of construction, which will mark a significant step forward in sustainable agriculture.
Notably, the Glencoe greenhouse site is conveniently located just 40 minutes from Ontario Plants Propagation's existing 45-acre (18.2-hectare) greenhouse facility in St. Thomas, Ontario. This facility currently supplies numerous major greenhouse growers throughout North America. The next stages of the Glencoe project are eagerly anticipated, and they stand as a testament to the commitment of both Dalsem and Ontario Plants Propagation to COFRA's Sustainable Food Group, a cause dedicated to ensuring a more sustainable and secure future in food production.
