Calculate the DLI (Daily Light Integral)

App to calculate the DLI (Daily light integral). Knowing the light intensity in PAR and the photoperiod we can obtain the daily light integral.
Daily light integral is a measure of the amount of light received in a particular area over a 24 hour period. DLI can also be defined as the amount of active photosynthetic radiation (PAR) received each day. It is expressed as moles of light (mol) per square meter per day. For example mol / m2/day. Full Day Light (DLI) affects greenhouse management decisions and will impact water requirements and yield. Enter the two information required by this app to calculate the DLI. Enter the light intensity and photoperiod to calculate the DLI.

Calculation of the DLI

DLI
950
Light intensity, in micromoles per square meter per second of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR wavelengths from 400 to 700 nm) is the level of light you would measure in an instant using a quantum light sensor
6
Photoperiod refers to the number of hours of natural or artificial light per day

DLI
mol / m2/ day

Let's take a look at the DLI of some crops that are commonly grown in greenhouses.

  • Vegetative growth (leafy vegetables / herbs): Minimum 17 mol / m² / d
  • Flowering crops (peppers / tomatoes): 20-40 mol / m² / d

Let's take a look at the DLI of some crops that are commonly grown indoors.

  • Microgreens (young plants): 6-12 mol / m² / d
  • Vegetative growth (leafy vegetables / herbs): 12-17 mol / m² / d
  • Flowering crops (peppers / tomatoes): 15-40 mol / m² / d

Calculate the DLI (Daily light integral) of the greenhouse you have in mind. Starting from the Italian geographical area concerned and knowing the limiting factors, in terms of the reduction of light radiation determined by the structure and material chosen as roofing, you can calculate the DLI of your project.
