Block infrared radiation to control plant temperature

13-03-2014

The plant consists for the most part of water so it is quickly warmed up by infrared radiation. Water absorbs infrared very well. Reflecting infrared radiation before it enters the greenhouse therefore has a large impact on plant temperature.

Steering with light colours getting closer

12-03-2014

Different light colours each have their own effect on growth and development. Our knowledge about this is increasing and is starting to be applied. But does our ability to steer with light still lie way in the future?

Screens hardly needed due to coating

11-03-2014

Since Dutch flower nursery, van de Westeringh, started using ReduHeat and ReduFuse IR, the shade screens have hardly been used at all. The flower colour remains good and working conditions are better.

Measuring light in practice

10-03-2014

All our coatings are measured annually by the light lab at Wageningen UR. They determine a number of values including direct transmission, hemispheric transmission and diffusion.

Loss of light through condensation

10-03-2014

Water droplets on the inside of greenhouses due to condensation can cause considerable loss of light.

Why diffuse light works

07-03-2014

If you scatter light when radiation is high, the total photosynthetic efficiency of the entire crop increases. This is the main reason why diffuse light leads to greater production. Furthermore it results in less heat stress.

Three years practical experience with ReduFuse

06-03-2014

Coating makes optimal growing possible. Diffuse light clearly can increase production and quality. Over the years this has been proven time and time again by horticultural research trials and now data from commercial nurseries is piling up. ReduFuse allows a greenhouse roof to diffuse light without the...

ReduFuse or ReduFuse IR?

04-03-2014

A few years ago Mardenkro introduced ReduFuse. It is a coating that diffuses sunlight while hardly reducing light transmission. It is used mostly in the summer months for vegetable and flower crops that normally are not, or very minimally, screened. It’s clear from the graph below that light transmission...

Pot plants benefit from diffuse glass

27-02-2014

A wide range of flowering and green pot plants performs better under ReduFuse. For some types the increase in productivity or acceleration of the production cycle is quite substantial. That is especially true if the grower can allow in more light. But even at an equal level of light, diffused light leads...

Shade really matters

26-01-2014

Shade really matters to John Ellerbrook, co-owner of Blofield Nurseries near Norwich, Norfolk, in the east of England. He’s one of the country’s best-known specialists in evergreen shrubs such as azalea, camellia, euonymus, photinia, pieris and rhododendron – all woodland shrubs that demand just the...

VHB and ReduHeat

25-01-2014

Good light levels are vital to pot herb production, both for speed of throughput and crop quality, but plants need to be protected, too, from excessive summer temperatures.

New Place Nurseries and ReduSol

24-01-2014

Moving newly potted nursery stock liners from the tightly controlled environment of a propagation unit and into a production glasshouse inevitably subjects the plants to stress.

Invaluable help during the summer months

11-12-2013

‘La Libellula’ is a firm that is producing cut salads in the province of Bergamo (Northern Italy). Their main products are Valerian, Green and Red Lettuce, Arugula, Lettuce heads and ‘Spinacino’ (young and tender spinach leaves). After harvesting, leaves and heads are sold to specialized companies that...

Independent light measurements

26-11-2013

Independent light measurements demonstrate: ReduFuse achieves uniform distribution of light with minimum loss! Mardenkro called in Multi-Meet from Nieuw-Vennep to measure the light in greenhouses belonging to Prominent, a growers’ association located in ’s-Gravenzande (Netherlands). The aim was to gain...
