Commercial greenhouses play a vital role in modern agriculture, allowing farmers to grow fresh and nutritious produce year-round. To ensure the best possible growth and productivity of crops, proper maintenance of a greenhouse is of paramount importance. Among the essential maintenance tasks, regular roof cleaning stands out as a crucial practice that directly impacts plant health and overall greenhouse performance. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into the best practices for proper commercial greenhouse roof cleaning, emphasizing safety, efficiency, and environmental responsibility.
Understanding the impact of light diffusion from UbiGro luminescent film can positively affect your greenhouse operations’ profitability, efficiency, and sustainability. Discover “why” shifting the sun’s spectrum is essential and how it can be used in your greenhouse design by downloading our FREE eBook!
This study investigates various LED driver strategies for vertical farming and their impact on reliability, maintenance, thermal management, and cost. Key findings suggest that remote driver configurations and centralized remote DC driver systems offer the greatest benefits to the CEA farm.
One of the largest reoccurring expenses growers are faced with is the ever-increasing cost of energy. This impact has led many growers to consider a transition to solid-state (LED) lighting to reduce energy consumption and lower costs. This white paper explores how greenhouse budgets benefit in multiple ways from replacing HPS with LED. Check it out to begin calculating the potential ROI your operation could gain from an LED lighting system.
This study was a collaborative effort of experts who have designed, installed, and monitored these systems. James Megerson, PE, LEED AP, Mechanical Engineer and Founder of Anvil Agrinomics, LLC, Michael Zartarian, MSEE, Horticulture Process Engineer and Principal of Zartarian Engineering, LLC, and Brian Anderson, AIA, Founder of cannabis architecture firm Anderson Porter Design, provide an experienced-based perspective to the performance data.
The future of greenhouse growing as an industry is changing rapidly due to market opportunities such as consumer demand for specific produce varieties, demand for local products, climate change, and the impact of technologies such as dynamic LED Lighting. Greenhouse growers now have the opportunity to create perfect lighting environments for crops all year long, change crops at any time, and adapt to plant and greenhouse conditions. Real-world applications show that truly dynamic lighting that offers real-time control of spectrum and intensity, unlike other lighting systems, increases yield, quality, and taste and saves energy. This white paper by Sollum’s R&D and Agronomy Team provides case examples including transitioning crops, fine-tuning lighting for cultivar genetics, light treatment, and more.
Is green light important? Would we prefer to leave green in the spectrum or convert it to red? The effects of green light on crop production have been studied, and while horticulture scientists continue to learn about the effects of the spectrum of crop growth and development, some general trends have emerged related to green light. UbiGro’s own Dr. Damon Hebert did the work for you in figuring out why Green Light really is essential for your plant spectrum.
