Even though light is absorbed by leaves at the top of the canopy, shading from neighboring leaves reduces the light available to leaves lower in the canopy and the plant is living up to less than its full photosynthetic potential.
Israel's largest cannabis facility taps into REMY and Fluence's LED technology for better control over its cultivation process, leading to higher consistency throughout the grow
Oasis Springs Farm: How the Right LED Grow Lights Can Improve Crop Quality and Increase Production up to 33% in Shipping Containers
With technology always changing, when it came time to build their third container farm last year, they knew they needed to investigate the latest in LED grow lights.
This business case will expound on the results of dynamic LED lighting in propagation and cut flower production. It will highlight its impact on various plant characteristics and the proven effectiveness of Sollum's 100% programmable LED grow light solution in greenhouses.
How important is it for tender new seedlings to germinate under a grow light? Plants typically grow faster, taller and denser with consistent illumination - but not all light bulbs nurture your plants equally.
LED manufacturers are actively working to improve upon existing technologies helping to create more efficient lighting capable of providing a dramatic increase in yields with reduced energy consumption and lower overall costs
Fluence's partnership with Israel-based Trichome proves the viability of growing high-quality medical cannabis product in an efficient, standardized vertical farming model
Although each vertical farm is uniquely built to overcome local challenges and to meet specific goals, the advantages of farming vertically are universally evident: space efficiency, hyper-locality to consumers, and water conservation stand out among a plethora of benefits.
Ensuring long-term success in cannabis cultivation requires investing in quality infrastructure that stands the test of time. The less efficient a system, the more money it will cost operators long-term. Let's shed some light on the efficiency of fixtures used in cannabis.
Many assume that artificial light in an indoor environment should emulate natural sunlight for the best growing conditions. However, this is not accurate. Light emitted from the sun contains many different wavelengths, some visible and some not.
Luminaires for plant researchers are designed for the grower to adjust the light to reach their goals. Researchers need flexibility in spectrum and intensity as well as precise control to create reliable experiment conditions.
With Fluence's SPYDR Series, Trichome leverages a high intensity, broad-spectrum strategy that delivers precise and uniform light to the plant canopy.
Located at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, the lab's team of dedicated researchers led by Dr. R. Glen Uhrig are working around the clock to unlock the mystery surrounding signalling events that control plant growth and development.
Fluence Announces Strawberry Research Results, Revealing Higher Yields and Better Plant Quality Under Broad-Spectrum Lighting Strategies
Overall, during the winter flush, spectra that included a fraction of far-red saw increased performance across all categories. However, the white spectrum with a fraction of far-red recorded the best performance across categories.
As consumers choose between purchases based on odours, colours and textures, the manipulation of light spectra could open up another door to richer aromatic and flavour profiles.

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
