Artificial light is a key determinant for the success of your crops. With the current climate control technology, there are more sensors than ever in your greenhouse. These give you more insights on a micro level, and the opportunity to steer your crop growth more precisely. So, for growth precision, it makes sense to adjust your light levels based on the increased insights provided by the sensors.
But there is another equally important reason to manage your light levels as precisely as possible.
Artificial light is one of the most energy-consuming elements in your greenhouse. With today’s high energy prices, growers are looking for ways to reduce costs without compromising quality.
So how can you get more out of your climate control investment? On the one hand, how can you achieve the optimum DLI (Daily Light Integral), the volume of light that is photosynthetically active, while on the other hand minimizing the energy costs of your light installation?
