Technology Explained

The pitch management system of the future has arrived. The R-BL system powered by the latest LED lighting technology will automatically change its light spectrum depending on the ever-changing weather conditions. It is a fully automated system with integrated LED lighting, sprinkling, fertilizing, disease blocking, infra-red lighting and measuring system. Designed for high-end stadiums to cover half (3,500m2) or a complete pitch (7,000m2) without touching the natural turf.

INFLUENCE OF LIGHT EXPLAINED

All plants require light and CO2 for photosynthesis. Stimulating or adjusting the Daily Light Integral (DLI) can help reducing the rooting time of cuttings and seedlings, and increasing crop quality.

Light is the driving force for photosynthesis, the process that changes sunlight into chemical energy within plants and grasses. During photosynthesis, water is split in a chemical reaction and separated into oxygen and hydrogen. In this process carbon dioxide (CO2) is converted into sugar.

A general rule of thumb is that 1% more light will produce a similar percentage increase in growth, resulting in a 1% higher yield.

BENEFITS

  • Speed up germination and recovery
  • More dense, stable and healthy pitch
  • Sustainable solution for maintaining natural grass pitches
  • Easy to use
