Dynamic lighting allows the user to change the output from the lamp with respect to intensity and/or spectral quality. There are several ways to work with dynamic lighting; over the day, season, growth stage or specific treatments. 

Depending on the growth goal there are different ways of working with a dynamic spectrum that determine when to apply which spectrum. One example of working with spectrum is using dynamic Far-Red. By altering the R:FR ratio, growers can influence the morphology of their crop, stimulate stem length in cut flowers, increase internodal spacing and the length of trusses. 

The potential of using far-red when it is most beneficial for the crop is possible with Smart LED technology. By using a flexible light like MITRA X Flex or CERES Flex the grower has the possibility to have an efficient light and steering the crop by have far-red on or off. Whether this is to get specific responses, to adapt to the season or to be flexible due to crop changes in the greenhouse.
