Discover and Understand Photobiology
How do different light wavelengths affect plants at various stages of their life cycle ? What specific light for a given variety ? How to accelerate growth cycles ? Can light have effects on a plant’s morphology ? Light, with its impact on the energy and agronomic balance of your cultivation paths, is an essential parameter of your activity.
Discover the fascinating world of photobiology and how this science can help you improve the performance of your operation.
How Photoreceptors Work
Plants consist of multiple sensors, including photoreceptors, which collect light. Each photoreceptor has its own sensitivity to different colors of the light spectrum, which varies according to the species, variety, and stage of development. Furthermore, photoreceptors are interdependent and connected to each other through communication channels. Each action will influence the entire network and enable the activation of a cascade of agronomic responses.
The Key to a Successful Lighting Recipe
Many talk about spectrum and color ratio when discussing a lighting strategy. But a strategy doesn’t stop there. Each crop, variety, and stage of development requires different inputs. To address this, a good lighting strategy must be dynamic, adapting to the plant’s agronomic needs and your goals, as well as to the current environmental and energy parameters. There is no universal and fixed lighting recipe. Continuous management of intensity and spectrum is essential to maximize production efficiency.
