Coating slows down vegetative growth in Santini Chrysanthemum02-03-2021
Chrysanthemums are a light-loving crop that can be sensitive to too much heat. Advisor Paul de Veld explains the choice of coatings and the sector’s trends.
Don’t block the light - manage it!02-03-2021
The ReduSystems variety of coatings has grown significantly in recent years. Growers are leveraging the possibilities to develop a customised approach for their crop. A number of growers is switching over to another coating, while others have every reason to stay with their current choice.
Lettuce and herbs flourish under ReduSol12-02-2021
When growing salads and herbs in greenhouses, these plants may experience stress from high temperatures in the greenhouse and excessive solar radiation in spring-summer period. “Agrocombinat “Moskovsky” is sharing its successful experience with ReduSol of keeping their crop growing and keeping its freshness.
Young aster shoots regrow easily under ReduFuse IR12-02-2021
Aster regrow after harvesting. The new shoots are vulnerable and therefore must be protected. Kwekerij Zijdezicht settled on ReduFuse IR as the best available coating.
‘It is important to keep your crop strong in summer’11-02-2021
Light levels were high in recent summers. Yet tomato growers did not manage to fully convert this light into increased production for this particularly light-loving crop. International crop consultant Frans van Meurs speaks about the importance of having a strong crop.
Mexican tomato grower: ‘With ReduHeat we reflect the heat, but maintain the...10-02-2021
Tomatoes can convert a lot of light into production but are also easily affected by heat. This is the reason why Hortalizas Argaman is using the heat reflecting ReduHeat coating.
Increased need for heat protection on Isle of Wight15-01-2021
Isle of Wight has an ideal tomato growing climate. However, the summers here are also becoming more extreme. APS Produce has successfully used the diffuse heat-reflecting ReduFuse IR coating for its sensitive varieties and organic tomatoes.
‘ReduSol forms the basis of hydrangea shading strategy’15-01-2021
Hydrangea cut flowers are very sensitive to irritants, in particular the white varieties. As a result, you always have to play it safe. Sijben Hydrangea uses the ReduSol coating as the basis of its shading strategy and uses the energy screen at times when too much light still enters the greenhouse.
ReduFuse IR – an excellent solution for many crops15-01-2021
Due to the hot summers in recent years, many growers have been reconsidering their coating systems. ReduFuse IR’s advance is striking. This coating is a better solution for many crops.
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.
