Low-growing ornamental crops benefit from diffused light30-03-2017
Low-growing ornamental crops such as potted plants and gerbera perform better under diffused light. The micro-climate around the plants is more even, and the light penetrates better into the crop.

Climate control based on plant temperature is getting closer27-02-2017
Plant temperature can differ from the greenhouse air temperature by several degrees. This is why controlling climate based on plant temperature is a good idea.
Use of coating requires tailor-made advice11-11-2016
For every type of crop it is important to create an optimal climate year-round to constantly achieve the maximum yield and quality. A coating on the greenhouse roof can be a good tool for this. However, there is a large range of coatings available and these can also be applied in different thicknesses....
CAM plants require special treatment01-11-2016
CAM plants are a group of plants that only assimilate at night and grow slowly. The cultivation of these plants requires special treatment.
Shading with ReduSol: a reliable solution for cooling the greenhouse01-11-2016
Nowadays, liquid greenhouse coatings are replacing chalk applications more than ever. These coatings are easy to apply, easy to remove and provide uniform shading. Coating with ReduSol is a good choice for people who have little or no experience with liquid coatings.
Proper functioning of stomata is crucial27-10-2016
The plant is continuously seeking a balance between transpiration (loss of moisture) and photosynthesis. The functioning of the stomata plays an important role in this. Moderate climate conditions are best for achieving this.
At the forefront of horticultural innovations26-10-2016
Mardenkro maintains close contact with scientific researchers and is a member of the Club 100: a group of prominent horticultural suppliers that helps finance and steer research at Wageningen Greenhouse Horticulture. This way Mardenkro is at the forefront of horticultural innovations.
Coatings enable maximum efficiency of photosynthesis28-09-2016
The more light, the better the yield. But at a certain moment the leaves at the top of the crop have reached their maximum capacity. Therefore it is better to distribute the available light throughout crop. That can be seen in the photo response curve.
Uniform light intensity best for crop11-07-2016
Plants show a delayed response to changes in light intensity. Actually they are always a few steps behind the reality and that reduces production. Diffuse light results in fewer changes and therefore to higher production.
Close collaboration with consultants15-05-2016
Mardenkro maintains close contacts with consultants who advise international greenhouses. Dutch horticultural technology is very popular all over the world but only with the proper know-how it is possible to achieve the maximum results.
Always a clean greenhouse04-05-2016
Even when prices are poor few companies cut back on cleaning the inside and outside of the greenhouse. This indicates that in practice the importance of good light transmission has sunk in.
Potential to steer crop with blue light03-05-2016
Crop development can be steered by using blue light. Insights into the possibilities are continuously growing as a result of joint research.
Light colour and intensity affect biological balance02-05-2016
Both pests and their natural enemies respond to the colour and intensity of light. This means that coatings can affect the biological balance in greenhouses.
Measuring crop temperatures30-04-2016
In greenhouse cultivation, we normally measure the greenhouse temperature. However, the temperatures of the plant and fruit are also very important in achieving optimum production and quality.
