Vertical farmers are growing with new and unique needs, so they need new grow lighting to satisfy those needs! Read more: Coverage refers to how well light is distributed to crops, across the plant canopy and penetrating through to lower leaves. Traditionally, coverage was limited because crop lights had set angles and coverage had to be calculated assuming a certain distance from crops. But vertical farms are meant to be flexible and are often tightly spaced. Big boxy lights with narrow coverage area limited how growers could hang and arrange lights, and made growing vertically awkward. What vertical farmers really need are light bars to offer good coverage. Those bars need to have several characteristics if they’re going to be good for vertical farms: Light bars (not boxes or panels) Double-sided lights Long lights Broad light angles Low heat output With this wish list in mind, we set out to create the grow lighting for vertical farms that we would actually want to use. ———— Timestamps / What’s Covered: 00:13 – What is the Cool Bar? 00:36 – Dimensions for Vertical Plane Growing 01:04 – Coverage of the Cool Bar 01:30 – Why Even Coverage is Important 01:50 – Does the Cool Bar Require Movers? ———— Connect with Bright Agrotech: Website: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: ———— Music by: Scott Gratton… Related PostsCannabis Vertical Farm with LED Grow Lights from BML HorticultureWhich are the best Indoor Grow Lights for you ?Cannabis Vertical Farm with LED Grow Lights from BML HorticultureColorado indoor grow lights transforms commercial agriculture growingGrow Lights Explained CFL LED and HPS easy and cheap to efficient and expensiveHydroponics Growing – Best of Hydroponics Grow Box Systems, Indoor Gardening, & LED Grow Lights

    would've been good to see these in action, to actually see the light coverage and how they're placed in your operations, and the crops you allocate for them with the added electricity expense etc.
