Investing in Citra’s LED lighting would have a long-term economic advantage over traditional lighting or grow lights for agricultural greenhouses. It is also a more environmentally friendly option, with less maintenance costs.
A major advantage of Citra’s LED technology is the manufacturers’ ability to tailor the light spectrum to offer to your crop. This is especially advantageous as opposed to supplementary greenhouse lighting in circumstances where lighting systems are used for sole source lighting. Vegetables that have a higher nutritional value can be grown using Citra’s LED lights adding 50% more vitamin C.
Citra’s LED illumination provides all the lighting required to grow healthy plants in an environment. When treated with Citra’s LED lighting, plants will be much healthier than traditional lighting systems which provide harmful wavelengths of light. Citra’s LED lights offer the grower power over wavelength regulation of light, allowing for a more ideal cycle of photosynthesis. These lights also remove the need to add indoor cooling systems because they do not give off heat. With Citra LED light fixtures, there is minimal heat and harmful wavelengths. As a result, water and resources are used to cultivate and produce healthy and robust plants.
Choosing the wrong greenhouse design will dramatically decrease the amount of sunlight you have available. Citra’s LED design for your greenhouse ensures constant year-round light exposure, most importantly in winter when the sun angle is lower. That means the correct orientation of your greenhouse for your latitude while minimizing shading from surrounding features.
Citra’s horticulture lighting system’s form factor and light distribution will affect the number of fixtures required in a facility, which is another factor that will impact a greenhouse’s overall energy efficiency. Another big advantage of ignored LED technology is the ability to dim the fixtures to produce optimum light intensities at various periods of the day or rising season. Citra adds the ability to automatically dim the fixtures depending on the amount of daytime ambient light needed to preserve consistent daylight intensities.
Citra’s IoT system uses high-efficiency LEDs with an energy-efficient and intuitive design. We have increased light output and robust device drivers that have been introduced with a user-friendly IoT system that enables real-time adjustment of output intensity and spectral ratios to optimize photosynthesis, achieve high yields and improve efficiency.
Citra LED lighting is a strong and reliable option if your target is long-lasting, low maintenance lighting. LED grow lights are designed for efficiency for agricultural operations without compromising cost-efficiency.
A high-quality Citra LED design ensures your plants are growing and your energy bill is not going up. Citra’s energy-efficient LED fixtures use up to 50% less power than older indoor lighting technologies such as high pressure sodium (HPS).
One of the benefits of Citra’s LED lights is the ability to change the spectrum to match your plant needs. You can obtain different outcomes from your plants by changing the spectra. Both energy and cost are important concerns for any business striving for sustainability. Not only does Citra’s LED design emit less heat, they also provide more usable light at a lower cost than what last century’s lights offered. The main reason why energy bills are lower with LED lighting is due to reduced energy use and heat production, as burning is not necessary to produce light. Citra’s design for energy savings from using LED grow lights will have a positive economic ripple effect, since it will simultaneously help lower costs.
Ambient Intelligence (IoT)
Citra IoT offers a managed environment suited to the needs of a greenhouse. Equipped with state-of-the-art sensor and communications technology, Citra’s smart IoT network automatically collects and delivers 24/7 surrounding crop information. Data collected is fed into an IoT platform where data turns it into actionable information to reveal bottlenecks and anomalies. HVAC and lighting operations can also be managed on request alongside irrigation and spraying activities. Continuous monitoring of data enables the creation of predictive models for evaluating crop disease and the risk of infection. By gaining vast insights into crops, a smart greenhouse enables agriculturists to reduce energy, increase resource quality and chemical usage while maximizing yield levels.
Citra’s IoT sensors and ambient parameters enable farmers to gather different data points. They provide real-time information on important climate variables including, the greenhouses surroundings, temperature, humidity, light exposure and carbon dioxide. This data prompts appropriate changes to HVAC and lighting settings in order to preserve the best plant growth conditions while increasing the energy output. It means that the irrigation and fertilization operations are in accordance with the real crop requirements for maximized yields. With the aid of Citra’s IoT system, data on greenhouse conditions, external weather and soil characteristics will provide useful insights into current pest and fungal risks. Using this information, farmers can apply treatments to ensure a healthy crop at the lowest chemical cost, exactly when needed.
