Sweet peppers benefit from diffuse light30-03-2016
Light is an important factor for achieving high yield and quality in a sweet pepper crop. Not only is the amount of light crucial, also its distribution during the day. Furthermore, the quality of the light, such as light colour and whether or not it’s direct or indirect is significant.
Uniform coating is an art08-03-2016
An evenly applied coating is very important. Otherwise an uneven amount of light enters the greenhouse and that can result in a non-uniform crop or problems with the climate control. Gert-Jan van Hattem, of spraying specialist HPW Spuittechnieken, talks about the art of coating.
Knowledge leads to better result23-02-2016
The coatings within ReduSystems are becoming more and more advanced. Advisors and users know about their properties and the changes being made to the growth strategy are leading to optimal results with higher crop returns. Mardenkro spends a lot of energy on the provision of information. To be able to...
Multiple thin layers ReduSol23-02-2016
Dutch chrysanthemum grower Hein van Wordragen applies coatings to the greenhouse roof himself instead of using a contractor. This way he can determine precisely the timing and thickness of the layer. He works with several thin layers on top of each other.
Better light distribution under diffuse roof20-02-2016
A diffuse greenhouse roof improves both the vertical as well as the horizontal light distribution. This accounts for half of the positive effect of diffuse light on photosynthesis.
More light means a better quality of Phalaenopsis14-02-2016
These days, Phalaenopsis growers are letting more light in. This requires getting the right balance between screens, coatings and humidity.
Sweet pepper growers are fans of ReduHeat15-01-2016
The sweet pepper nurseries run by the Reedijk brothers, in Strijen and Westdorpe, the Netherlands, were some of the first to use ReduHeat. It prevents quality problems in the fruits.
Coating in layers is interesting for all growers11-01-2016
Growers ask many questions about light loss in relation to applying a coating. Through smart use of ReduSystems products it is possible ‘to shade with the light’. Here are a few tips to discuss with your customers.
Diffused light virtually always better11-01-2016
All fruit-bearing vegetable crops benefit from diffuse light. The total photosynthesis increases through better light penetration and reduced heat stress.
How does AntiReflect work?11-01-2016
AntiReflect reduces the difference in refractive index between air and glass; that is why the greenhouse receives more sunlight.
Anti-condensation coating for glass11-01-2016
In the Netherlands the levels of light are low in winter. We can compensate for this by using additional lighting, but it is also important to let in as much of the available natural light as possible. One way of getting more light in is to reduce light loss caused by condensation.
ReduFuse tempers harsh Auckland climate10-01-2016
The strong radiation in the area around Auckland (New-Zealand) can lead to a reduction in yield and to too much generative plant growth. Since Underglass NZ started using ReduFuse, yield has risen and the greenhouse climate can be controlled better.
Chrysanthemums under ReduFuse20-12-2015
If the crop can remain active for longer on warm days it can also mean extra yield. In order to achieve that chrysanthemum grower Jan Boerma has been using ReduFuse.
ReduFuse removes the sharpness20-12-2015
Alstroemerias do like light. “By using ReduFuse you remove the sharpness while minimising the light loss,” says Maurice Olsthoorn of Together2Grow.
Better quality and a more pleasant working climate17-11-2015
After a trial in which half a roof was covered with ReduFuse, Kainz & Mayer Marchfeld tomatoes, has switched over to using it completely. Cluster quality and setting improved and some varieties yield more too.
