Integration of lighting and CO2 control to optimize crop production efficiency

Combining lighting and CO2 control in commercial greenhouses and indoor farms can increase crop production efficiency and reduce operational costs. GLASE researchers at Cornell University are developing crop-specific models correlating day light integral (DLI) and CO2 concentration for lettuce, tomato and strawberries. The resulting software will allow growers to select and pre-programmed CO2 and DLI equations for lettuce, tomatoes and strawberries.
