Light diffusion and transmission can make all the difference when it comes to plant quality and health in the greenhouse. Because of this, today’s coverings manufacturers are focused on products that offer flexibility in diffusion and color, with the goal of both improved light penetration and lower heating costs.
Check out these products for a closer look at some of the latest technology being developed by coverings suppliers.
ChromatiNet Red (Signature Supply)
ChromatiNet Red changes the light spectrum transmitted to plants, reducing the spectrum of blue, green, and yellow light and increasing the red and far-red light spectrum. Thus, the rhythm of plants’ development under red light is increased, their leaf surface is larger, their stems are longer and thicker, and the total foliage volume is higher. The net enables early flowering without decreasing flower quality. The net is suitable mainly for growers who wish to accelerate growth and increase foliage volume plants such as house plants, decorative branches, non-flowering herbs, and a variety of field and nursery plants, especially when the objective is to enhance the development of root systems in shoots and tissue culture plantlets. Flexible, light, strong, and easy to spread, the net is available in various widths. It is recyclable and UV resistant.
