The hydrophilic character of AntiCondens improves light incidence11-12-2020
Condensation on the greenhouse cover can significantly reduce light incidence. The hydrophilic properties of AntiCondens ensure that more light enters the greenhouse.
Prevention of droplets inside plastic greenhouse results in 80% reduction in...12-11-2020
Large condensation droplets cause loss of light in any greenhouse. Furthermore, in plastic greenhouses and tunnels they cause disease-related problems. These problems can be controlled to a large extent by using the AntiCondens coating.
Transforming extra light incidence into better production12-10-2020
In the autumn, winter and early spring there is too little sunlight for optimal production. Every percentage point extra light will lead to increased photosynthesis and furthermore helps heat the greenhouse, says Cecilia Stanghellini of Wageningen University & Research.
Thoroughly and safely cleaning a greenhouse with GS-412-10-2020
A clean greenhouse allows more light in and reduces pathogens and diseases. Regularly cleaning the greenhouse, at least at the time of a crop change, is therefore very important. Our instruction video demonstrates the best method of use.
Shading and cooling agents are playing an increasingly important role in the...29-09-2020
According to Rui Xue Global, the partner of ReduSystems coatings in China, February and March are normally the peak sales period of shading and cooling agents. However, this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected logistics and production.
Anne Elings explains why crops grow better with more light21-09-2020
For a good part of the year, the level of natural light is below optimal for most crops. Any additional light that then enters the greenhouse contributes to improved production and quality, says Anne Elings, Plant Physiologist at Wageningen University & Research.
New website and ReduWizard provide year-round coating advice16-09-2020
ReduSystems launches its renovated website this autumn: www.redusystems.com. As the number of coatings increases so do the options for use. The website and the renovated ReduWizard advisory tool point you toward the best result.
AntiCondens: careful application gives the best results07-09-2020
With AntiCondens, you optimize the incidence of light in your greenhouse. Application is not complicated, but it requires care. Our instruction video demonstrates how best to apply it.
Knowledge sessions on year-round product package03-09-2020
ReduSystems is constantly expanding its product package. This steadily increases the available options for controlling natural light year-round. To keep crop advisors informed of the optimal use and combination of coatings, the ReduSystems team held a number of interactive knowledge sessions over the...
How does the ReduWizard calculate?20-08-2020
The ReduWizard is an online tool that helps you choose the proper coating for your particular situation. Mardenkro is often asked how the ReduWizard comes up with its recommendations. The web app is simple in appearance, but behind the scenes a number of elaborate databases ensure the app makes the proper...
Getting more light into the greenhouse in three steps13-07-2020
An old growers saying has it that 1% more light yields 1% higher production. Scientists have since shown that this is in fact a bit more nuanced: depending on the crop this varies from 0.5% to 1.25%. However, the principle remains the same; during a large part of the year all of the sunlight can effectively...
Adapting climate and watering to coatings16-06-2020
Coatings soften the greenhouse climate; this provides an opportunity to change how the climate and watering are controlled. Two crop advisors discuss the principles that apply to tomatoes, gerbera and alstroemeria.
Coatings and high-pressure misting keep crops growing18-05-2020
More and more growers are using high-pressure misting systems. In combination with coatings, this is an excellent way of keeping crops active and productive in hot summers.
80% of production is determined by the greenhouse climate18-05-2020
Philippe Bertolotto's tomato plants would produce virtually nothing in summer without ReduSol. But the precise moment of application and removal is crucial and identifying that time window is a challenge every year.
Delaying crop growth in anticipation of better times02-04-2020
The market for ornamental products has declined drastically due to the coronavirus. Many growers have questions about slowing down their crop growth in order to lower or postpone production.
