Monitoring Carbon Dioxide Levels in Industrial Greenhouses

Carbon Dioxide is critical to plant growth and development. Photosynthesis requires Carbon Dioxide (CO2) concentrations in ambient air ranges from 300-500 parts per million (ppm). If you are growing Fruit or Vegetables in a greenhouse or indoors, the CO2 levels will reduce as the plants use up CO2 during photosynthesis. Increasing the CO2 levels in this environment is essential for good results. Additionally, there are benefits to raising the CO2 level higher than the global average, up to 1500 ppm. With CO2 maintained at this level, yields can be increased by as much as 30%.
