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.
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.
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.
