Commercial Greenhouse Blackout Systems for Light Deprivation
Greenhouse blackout systems, also referred to as light deprivation or “light dep” is a horticultural growing technique that allows precise control of the light levels your crops receive during certain growth stages of your plants.
To accomplish total blackout in a commercial greenhouse environment, light deprivation curtains are required. Simulating seasonal changes, the resulting darkness tricks plants into flowering. This reduces the time needed for plants to reach maturity, and allows the grower to enjoy multiple harvests per year.
