Instead of describing structures as high- or low-tech systems, Viramontes classifies them as passive or active.

Because Mexico’s climate is conducive to growing, growers can use less active technologies than what can be used in severe climates, he said.

About 60% in Mexico use passive technology, he said.

Viramontes said 256 growers with about 18,000 acres of protected agriculture in 26 states in Mexico are AMHPAC members.
