Carbon dioxide marked with CO2 symbol is indispensable for the plants to develop properly. In closed rooms, the demand for plants for carbon dioxide is higher than in natural conditions. Too low CO2 level will make the plant grow very slowly.
Enriching crops with carbon dioxide
Carbon dioxide is an odorless and colorless gas that surrounds us constantly. In the air we breathe, there are about 0.03 - 0.04% of carbon dioxide. Plants that have a fast growth rate in a closed room can use up all available CO2 in just a few hours. When carbon dioxide levels fall below 0.02%, processes of both photosynthesis and growth begin to slow down.
For 35 years, enrichment of crops with carbon dioxide has been practiced in commercial greenhouses. By adding CO2 to the air in the growboks, we favorably influence the growth of the plant. In this way, we also contribute to increasing crop productivity.
