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.
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.

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.
