Lighting Solutions for Horticultural Applications

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.

4 Things To Consider When Comparing LED Lighting Systems

Although many of the currently available LED fixtures look similar and often utilize many identical components it is still important to fully explore performance metrics when evaluating lighting options.

Lighting the Way to Sustainable Agriculture

In the grow, 16 ft. towers holding layers of hydroponic beds maximize their growing space and minimize waste production to as low as 5%, and with a reliance on hydropower, no excess C02 is released into the atmosphere.

Lighting Uniformity in Horticulture

Lighting uniformity in architecture has been a topic of interest for at least seventy years (e.g., IES 1947), where the goal is to encompass the range of illuminance values measured at an array of positions on a horizontal plane, all in a single metric.

How Can Smart Technology Benefit Vertical Farms?

Smart technology can benefit many industries and application areas. IoT (specifically sensors), smart systems used to control and monitor conditions, drones, and predictive analytics are all hugely beneficial, particularly for the vertical farming sector.

+14-28% Boost in Winter Strawberry Trial

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.

A Guide To Horticultural Lighting

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.

The Taste Race: Light's Impact on Crop Aromatic and Flavour Profiles

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.

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.

HYBRID LIGHTING STRATEGIES: ADVANTAGES, DISADVANTAGES AND GETTING STARTED

Research on the ideal lighting for greenhouse cultivation reveals a fundamental truth: LED systems are far more efficient and effective than their HPS counterparts.

7 Strategies to Improve Cannabis Lighting

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.

Innovating Ag-Lighting

Architects, lighting designers and former NASA engineers detail new bio-driven lighting solutions for advanced sustainable indoor agriculture.

The One Thing You're Probably Overlooking in Your Greenhouse

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!

Let There Be Light

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.

Novel Quantum Dot Optical Fiber Technology That Delivers Extra Light to the Lower Canopy of Plants

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.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

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.
