Mardenkro’s ReduSystems products are global leaders when it comes to regulating greenhouse climate. For many years ReduSystems has been at the forefront of innovation. In 2004 ReduHeat won the Horti Fair Innovation Award.
In 2011 an international expert jury judged ReduFuse to be the most innovative product at the exhibition, so once again we went home with the Innovation Award. We can’t innovate just by ourselves. Together with worldwide leading research centres, universities and growers, we continuously develop new products and test them in practice. Only products with proven added value are included in the ReduSystems family.

Technology is not the only way to save energy. Savings can also be made by making better use of the properties of the plant. > Read more about saving energy
Save time and energy with water-based pipe paint
The paint on heating pipes in greenhouses is constantly exposed to humidity, residues and mechanical loads. As a result of this wear and tear, the pipes become less reflective and heat transfer suffers. The best time to maintain your pipes is in the period between crops. An advantage of a water-based pipe coating like PipePaint is that it doesn’t give off harmful vapors that could damage the crop. But there are other advantages as well.
Every percent more light in winter is pure profit
Light is the limiting factor in production in winter. Every step taken to improve light ingress is therefore welcome. > Read more about increasing light ingress in winter
Vegetable and ornamental crops can produce much more than they do at present if the climate conditions are always ideal.

Crop uses autumn light less efficiently
Tomato plants utilise available light in the autumn less efficiently for production than in the spring. Why is this and can it be changed?

Removing coatings: how to get your greenhouse spotlessly clean
This summer, some growers have started removing their greenhouse roof coatings earlier than usual because of the mediocre summer weather. ReduClean is the perfect product for the job. When it comes to removing ReduFuse (IR), there is a special version of ReduClean available: ReduClean for ReduFuse. Dennis van Veldhoven, co-owner of machinery contractors Van Veldhoven in De Lier in The Netherlands, explains how to get the best result.
Daily light integral should be guide for optimal production of ornamentals
An increasing number of ornamental crop growers regularly measure the amount of light in the greenhouse. But just as important as the light level at any given time is the total light sum or daily light integral (DLI) received by the crop.
