Plant Canopy Penetration and the PerfectPar™ DuoLight 4000 Grow Light

A plant canopy consists of a population of leaves being exposed to different light intensities and these different light intensities will determine the overall Photosynthetic rate of a plant canopy penetration. Overal plant productivity depends on the amount of collective canopy photosynthesis. By increasing light intensity only on top of a plant canopy will provide …

Advanced Lighting Strategies for Maximizing Profits in Controlled Environment Agriculture

Controlled growing environments make it possible to grow high-value crops quickly and with relatively little space. However, the cost of inputs such as fertilizer and electricity can also be high. According to recent research, the electricity required for lighting accounts for over 30% of the recurring cost of growing in a controlled environment. Recent advances …

Photosynthesis and the Light Spectrum Graph White BG

Light Spectrum and Photosynthesis

About Light Spectrum and Photosynthesis This graph illustrates Photosynthesis rate (efficiency) relative to the most abundant pigment, Chlorophyll a.  Although highest efficiencies are around 430nm (blue) and 660nm (red), however, it shows that green and yellow lights also contribute to photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process by which plants and certain other organisms transform light energy …
