Understanding basic principles of lighting and its effect on flower crops
When it comes to floral crop cultivation, the requirements vary for light. The most basic requirement is to reduce the light that the plant receives as needed, by shading, or to regulate the photoperiod. These are both relatively easy to achieve with the use of shading screens.
Climate screens crucial to new greenhouse
A new 22 ha greenhouse complex in the East of England features the UK’s largest heat pump installation, showcasing how low carbon energy can facilitate sustainable high-tech food production. Climate screens are a crucial element in enabling the use of this renewable heat source, and also preventing light pollution from the supplementary lighting system.
Climate screens Harmonise
Last year (2021), Addy Breugem, head grower at Thanet Earth Tomatoes, replaced half of the tomato crops’ original SON-T (HPS [high-pressure sodium] lights with LED lights. His motivation for switching to LED lights was to save energy – reducing Thanet Earth’s energy usage and becoming less reliant on the capricious energy market.
Climaflow – the solution to accelerate your growing climate
ClimaFlow, a solution that combines Hinova’s VentilationJet System®, and Svensson’s advisory service, Climate House.
Luxous H2no - Bring in the light
Condensation droplets on your climate screens cause an 8% reduction in light. Svensson’s renewed H2no technology transforms these condensation droplets into a film of water, and thus prevents light from being lost.
Consciously growing together.
Over four decades, Svensson has increased production and improved crop quality globally. But we are also helping growers worldwide to create a better climate for sustainable greenhouse cultivation with reduced climate impact.
Luxous Eco important step towards circular greenhouse horticulture
The pressure is increasing with new, tightened climate plans. Glasshouse horticulture is the only sector in the manufacturing industry in the Netherlands to achieve all climate targets in 2020.
PDI - A family business with vision and courage
They are natural talents who have made their family businesses great through hard work. The practice was their school and not so much the school desk. Peter Dekker turned PDI into a global player. Bert van Ruijven of Arcadia had the vision and courage to go for disbudded chrysanthemum. Patriarchs who now make their (life) experience available to a new generation.
From analyzing data to optimizing cultivation
Data is becoming increasingly valuable, also in greenhouse horticulture. That is no longer news. To measure is to know, but what do you know exactly? In addition to the data itself, the interpretation of data is just as important.

Can greenhouse horticulture save the climate? Or will the climate save greenhouse horticulture?
Greenhouse horticulture is using energy more and more efficiently. It is mainly due to increased productivity and innovations in the energy field. Energy-saving, therefore, remains of crucial importance. At the same time, greenhouse horticulture benefits from climate change.
