Our particular client is aiming to have peppers out of season. This means that you have to cultivate in the Autumn and Winter months when sunlight is quite scarce, reaching only 9 hours of natural light.
Our approach was to extend the hours of the day with artificial lighting as complementary light and, the remaining 100%, with artificial light until completing a cycle of 16h of light and reaching a DLI of 18mol/day
After conducting an on-site inspection, we were able to measure the lighting needs that the project required inside the greenhouse on a cloudy day in the worst environmental conditions, so we considered the most efficient options of our represented.
For this first part of this project we have selected 135 AGRIBAR 155W luminaires from our partner Grow-Spec with a customized spectrum for plant growth and the root system, therefore, with a high content of blue and white.
