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.
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.
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...
An optimal climate in every season07-01-2020
Every climate is different, and each crop has its own preferences. The wide range of ReduSystems coatings makes it possible to manage sunlight throughout the year.
How much light does my crop need?23-12-2019
There is an optimal amount of light for every crop. Too little means that production will be low. But too much will put pressure on the yield and quality. So custom work is always key.
Controlling growth with light: more in winter, diffuse in summer10-09-2019
For a grower, every ray of sunlight entering the greenhouse in winter is a bonus. Light is also welcome in summer, provided it is properly distributed throughout the crop. This can be achieved by combining coatings. Two vegetable growers are leaders in this field in the Netherlands.
Light gain in greenhouse after applying AntiCondens leads to more production03-06-2019
For crops that are switched in the summer, this is the ideal time to apply AntiCondens to the inside of the greenhouse cover. It is a good preparation for the coming humid season, when condensation droplets block valuable light. Tomato grower Paul van Paassen has been using AntiCondens for three years,...
Ten percent higher light incidence in greenhouse09-06-2018
Every percent can be converted into higher production. Mardenkro offers a package of solutions designed to improve the incidence of light into a greenhouse by as much as ten percent.
Coatings can reduce energy consumption20-04-2018
Coatings can reduce the energy consumption per kilo of product and in winter they can also reduce the absolute energy consumption.
Every percent more light in winter is pure profit01-11-2017
Light is the limiting factor in production in winter. Every step taken to improve light ingress is therefore welcome.
Vegetable and ornamental crops can produce much more than they do at present if the climate conditions are always ideal.
Preventing light loss and disease in plastic greenhouses23-06-2017
Condensation on the greenhouse roof is the result of air dehumidification. In plastic greenhouses steps need to be taken to prevent the condensation from causing problems.
AntiCondens for glass allows significantly more light into the greenhouse22-06-2017
Tomato grower Paul van Paassen is the first in the Netherlands to use the coating AntiCondens for glass. “It clearly leads to more light inside.” he says.
