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.
Research on the ideal lighting for greenhouse cultivation reveals a fundamental truth: LED systems are far more efficient and effective than their HPS counterparts.
When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?
Fluence by OSRAM Reveals Multiyear Global Research Results on Broad-Spectrum Lighting Strategies for Cannabis and Food Crops
In partnership with leading scientific research institutions around the world, Fluence explores broad-spectrum white light performance in select crops, cultivars
Growers who are able to optimize the supplemental light they provide to plants can eliminate seasonal changes in production cycles, increase crop production, ensure crop consistency and grow quality plants year-round.
The vertical farming industry still has challenges to overcome. Production costs remain relatively high and, as a young market, knowledge gaps in operational best practices in critical areas threaten long-term sustainability and profitability.
Glenwood Valley Farms and Fluence Partner for LED Implementation, Driving Increased Crop Yields and Greater Energy Efficiency
LED installation enables Glenwood Valley Farms to increase light intensity without raising overall facility temperature
In collaboration with Wageningen University & Research and Compassionate Cultivation, Fluence is proud to announce the findings of a series of groundbreaking photobiology research studies examining how light spectra affect cannabis growth and development.
Leading tomato grower in Canada sees significant cost savings with LED technology and heavier fruit weights that drive increased yields
Dr Antony Dodd's research into the plant circadian clock had found that optimising growing conditions to match the clock resulted in plants that contained more chlorophyll, allowing them to convert more of the available light into biomass and grow faster.
Fluence and REMY unite to deliver LED lighting solutions that feed huge growth in Israel's medical cannabis market
New partnership combines REMY's local roots and Fluence's expertise in lighting for crop production to help cultivators deliver quality, quantity, and cost-efficiency.
Choosing the best grow light for your facility is essential to growing healthy plants and getting a maximum return from your investment.
As indoor farming gained popularity, artificial lights got better at replicating the sun. Now, we have plenty of choices for growing plants without any sunlight indoors. These fixtures are referred to as grow lights.

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
