The Importance of DLI and Light Quality

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.

Cosy Climate in the Greenhouse - Climate Sensors Ensure Optimum Growing Conditions

CO2, humidity and temperature sensors must provide accurate and reliable measurement results to the climate control system in the greenhouse. Inaccurate or even false readings impact on productivity and, in the worst case, can jeopardize the entire harvest.

The Absorption and Action Spectrum and the Benefits of Green Light

Light has a complex relationship with plants. When the light touches a leaf, it can be absorbed by, reflected from, or transmitted through to other leaves. Plants appear green to us because they reflect and transmit slightly more green light than they do blue or red.

Supplemental Greenhouse Lighting: Hacking the Sun to Grow Your Business

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.

Integrating Sensors Key to Improving Environmental Conditions for Growing
