Continuing the discussion from PPFD Grow Light Comparision:
I am starting this thread to collect hard science of lighting. Eventually we will collate the information for the growers library.
I am looking to afocus our efforts on the following. Please expand if necessary.
- How to choose lighting vendors. Hard questions, not I am a better vendor. The whys.
- How lighting is effective in glasshouse production.
- The differences between glasshouse and grow room requirements.
- Hard science behind lighting sources.
- Cost benefits of the business of lighting on production. Business side of lighting as a function of production. How to ametorize lighting. What does it do to your production costs from an overhead cost calculation. The best number I have is 1 cent per square foot per day. So we can use 23 vs 24 cents as a starting point.
