Frequently
Asked
Questions

UbiGro is a new greenhouse cover product that is changing the way cultivators think about sunlight and sustainable growth and controlled environment agriculture. With every new product comes many questions.

Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about UbiGro, how it works, how long, etc. If your question isn’t answered below, you can ask our experts! 

No.  UbiGro Cover will install exactly like you would any other greenhouse cover.  Whether a single layer poly for a hoop house or a double-wall poly configuration, your installation is exactly the same as you would do with any other greenhouse covering.

UbiGro appears orange to the human eye because it is glowing with a peak color of 600 nm.  This is the most efficient color within PAR for photosynthesis and is the foundation of all UbiGro products.  UbiGro Cover is more than just a protection for your crop, it is actually a layer of light powered by the sun that is glowing over your crop.  The glow comes from capturing UV and some blue photons and converting these to efficient red light that powers photosynthesis.

While using UbiGro Cover as both layers of a double-wall system could possibly be great, we recommend using it as one layer in a double system.  UbiGro can be used as either the inner of outer layer and is built to last in both environments.  Deciding whether to use it inside or out can depend on many factors like: Does the other layer contain UV blocker or IR?  Location can also be a factor depending on northern or southern locale or even altitude.  If you have questions about your particular farm, please contact the UbiGro sales team to help advise what is best for your greenhouse.

UbiGro has a team of sales people across the U.S.  Click here to have a sales representative reach out directly.  Currently UbiGro cover is manufactured in the US for sales across all of North America and can be shipped overseas for potential international partners.  UbiGro is working to partner with international greenhouse covering manufacturers to make UbiGro available around the world.

Absolutely not!  The Quantum Dots used by UbiGro are from UbiQD’s exclusive license to produce safe, non-toxic QDs made with copper, zinc and sulphur.  These QDs are embedded into the polymer where they are protected from the elements and perfectly safe.
