Summary of a White Paper written by Evan Sims
During the Summer of 2023, Ceres conducted a study that measured the air quality of our SunChamber™ sealed greenhouse design compared to a traditional greenhouse and an indoor grow. From this study, we found that the SunChamber™ has noticeably cleaner air, with fewer tiny particles that can often carry harmful fungi and pests that affect plant health. In particular, we noticed fewer particles that are typically associated with a common plant problem known as powdery mildew. This study is important for growers because a cleaner growing environment will increase your crop viability, which directly affects your profits.
We have concluded that the results of this study have to do with the specific climate control needs of the SunChamber™. Unlike indoor grows, the SunChamber™ is exposed to natural sunlight, which is three to four times more intense than the average indoor artificial light setup. To effectively cool the environment, the SunChamber™’s HVAC system circulates air more frequently (it is meant to handle larger air flows compared to indoor grows). This increased circulation means the air gets filtered more often. This frequent filtering helps keep out pests and diseases, leading to potentially better crop yields.
