Growing without daylight

A changing climate, increased need for self-sufficiency and limited space creates new challenges with cultivation. More and more solutions are being sought in vertical farming, city farming and cultivation containers. The lack of daylight means that creative solutions are needed to ensure that every crop grows optimally. Optimization based on the light level in combination with the correct climate control allows crops to develop in the desired manner. The efficiency of the lighting is important so that the applied power is optimally used.

In addition, it must be possible to grow different crops, possibly even in the same room. Wide applicability is desired to easily grow different crops.
