The significance of high energy costs on the Guernsey glasshouse industry

Acta Horticulturae (55): 91-97
The significance of high energy costs on the Guernsey glasshouse industry
Guernsey's glasshouse industry, being located on an island and having an insignificant home market, incurs a substantial economic penalty in marketing costs. The scale and concentration of the industry enable production costs other than fuel to be kept in line with its main competitors. The mild winter climate provides a significant reduction in fuel requirements compared with other glasshouse areas of N.W.
