Investment in AntiReflect produces considerably greater yield09-07-2018
Durability tests carried out in actual practice show that AntiReflect lasts at least 2 years. Throughout that time, the extra light in the greenhouse results in considerably greater yields. This is the conclusion of the calculations made by Wageningen University & Research.
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.
ReduSystems products can be combined without problems19-03-2018
All ReduSystems coatings are fully compatible and can therefore be applied on top of each other to achieve the desired result. This also applies to the new solution AntiReflect.
The difference between reflecting light and heat04-03-2018
Reflecting too much or too little light impacts on production in any crop. With ReduSol it is easy to adjust the percentage of light and heat that is reflected. But heat stress is often a bigger problem than too much light. In that case, ReduHeat is the answer.
Reducing UV with ReduFlex UV04-03-2018
UV radiation can have both positive and negative effects on the crop. A high dose is not desirable however, it inhibits photosynthesis and results in visible damage. In addition, UV radiation breaks down plastics. ReduFlex UV is designed to protect against excessive doses of UV light.
The importance of reliable and independent measurements02-02-2018
Mardenkro is firmly committed to ensure that its products have a sound scientific basis and therefore maintains close contact with Wageningen University & Research, the perfect partner for conducting independent measurements and pursuing new avenues.
Mardenkro publishes second book: “ReduSystems: The bright side of growing”20-01-2018
Due to the great success of the first book, Mardenkro publishes a second book called “ReduSystems: The bright side of growing”. This book highlights the new, revolutionary product AntiReflect and explains how this product ensures a light gain of approximately 3% on existing horticultural glass.
Saving energy without technology17-11-2017
Technology is not the only way to save energy. Savings can also be made by making better use of the properties of the plant.
More knowledge = better result01-11-2017
ReduSystems coatings produce the best result when you use the right product for the plant. The ReduWizard makes it easier to choose the one that’s right for you. In some cases, the Horticultural Product Specialist can also help.
Vegetable and ornamental crops can produce much more than they do at present if the climate conditions are always ideal.
Crop uses autumn light less efficiently28-08-2017
Tomato plants utilise available light in the autumn less efficiently for production than in the spring. Why is this and can it be changed?
The colour of light is important05-07-2017
The colour of light affects the efficiency of photosynthesis but also growth and development. It is becoming more and more possible to work with these facts.
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.
Bumblebees benefit from coating on the roof22-06-2017
Bumblebees don't like extreme temperatures. Therefore, if the roof is coated they often function better and that improves their effectiveness.
