Seasonal Variation in Natural Light

As climate change threatens the concept of traditional growing seasons and as communities push for more local agriculture, the idea of being able to de-seasonalize production offers increased productivity and opportunities for greenhouse growers. To fully grasp how Sollum Technologies’ solution can effectively support this transition, we must better understand how natural light changes seasonally and why this variation affects plant growth.

Photoreceptors and Red/Far-red Impacts

Photoreceptors and Red/Far-red Impacts The previous white paper focused on seasonal and daily changes to light quality (i.e., spectrum) and quantity (i.e., intensity and photoperiod), which significantly impact plant growth and development. While the impact of light quantity may appear more obvious, that of light quality is more abstract due to the nanoscopic nature of light. With light quantity, we can easily discern whether light is more intense and whether the day is longer or shorter.

Introduction to Dynamic Lighting

The term “dynamic lighting” is becoming more common in the world of precision agriculture. The concept of dynamically controlling artificial light is in its infancy, and as such the definition of exactly what constitutes “dynamic lighting” is not always consistent between sources. Sollum Technologies identifies four fundamental criteria for its lighting technology to be truly dynamic
