greenhouse paint / photo-selective
ReduFlex Blue is a photo-selective coating which has a beneficial effect on the cultivation and production of cut roses because it transmits relatively less blue light than red light. It also reflects high levels of infrared radiation (heat).
Prevents high plant and bud temperatures by reflecting a larger amount of high-energy blue light
Lowers greenhouse temperatures through high reflection of infrared radiation
Pushes up production due to relatively higher levels of red light
Suitable for glass, acrylate, polycarbonate and plastic film
Easy to remove with ReduClean
ReduFlex Blue improves photosynthesis by allowing crops to reap optimal benefits from relatively high amounts of red light. At the same time it lowers the greenhouse and plant temperatures by more reflection of high-energy blue light and infrared radiation. ReduFlex Blue was tested extensively on roses in 2012 and 2013. The results are available from Mardenkro. In 2014, ReduFlex Blue will be commercial available for rose crops and will be tested on a larger number of different crops. Contact Mardenkro for more information or if you would like to participate in a trial.
