In this study, the influence of spectral conversion under UbiGro quantum dot (QD) luminescent greenhouse films on plant growth and fruit yield of strawberries grown during winter was investigated.
Artificial lighting is essential for growing plants indoors. This guide will walk you through the basics of understanding commercial horticultural lighting and things to take into consideration when shopping for fixtures.
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.
Different plants require a different amount of light for healthy crop production. High-light crops, such as tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers require a high Daily Light Integral (DLI). Both their quality and yield depend on them getting enough light throughout the day.
Research on the ideal lighting for greenhouse cultivation reveals a fundamental truth: LED systems are far more efficient and effective than their HPS counterparts.
While there are lighting fundamentals that apply no matter what type of facility growers are operating, there are certain strategies that indoor growers must use to be successful that are different than approaches greenhouse growers take.
Architects, lighting designers and former NASA engineers detail new bio-driven lighting solutions for advanced sustainable indoor agriculture.
The cost of natural sunlight is an important thing for producers to understand because there is an economic value that they should be placing on sunlight. It's one of the main inputs to production!
What if I told you that your canopy wasn't as effective as it could be? What if you couldn't see it, but each day so many photons that we can't even quantify them, were going from your roof or your lights right through to the ground.
Hung above plants in a greenhouse, the fiber concentrator devices absorb underutilized portions of sunlight, convert the energy into a more ideal spectrum, and then strategically guide that light to the lower leaves of plants.
Heliospectra Introduces Revolutionary Modular LED Lighting Solution With Customizable Configurations
MITRA Delivers High Performance, High Efficacy and Optimal Spectra LED Solutions for Greenhouse, Vertical or Indoor Crops.
As used in commercial indoor growing, LED lighting technologies have been around less than ten years. LED lights are less understood than other types of grow lights, which have been studied for several decades.
Grower Replaces T5s Fluorescents with VividGro's GroBar™ Luminaires, Gains Dramatic Savings in Time and Expense
Because GroBar luminaires are completely cool, plants can come into direct contact without incurring any damage. Growers then have greater flexibility in stacked grow options and see an additional benefit in reduced cooling costs.
As his business and passion continue to flourish, Brian is preparing to expand his operations, adding more grow space and cultivating new crops, including edible flowers and mushrooms. And of course, VividGro products are prominently included in his design.
