The use of high-tech greenhouse facilities and vertical farms for fruit and vegetable crop cultivation is skyrocketing in certain parts of the globe as a response to increased demand for fresh produce, less reliable weather conditions and the rising scarcity of cultivable farmland. Precision farming ensures all-year production, higher yields, improvement in product quality and higher marketable value. Modern indoor farming technologies offer the possibility to boost plant density as compared with open field cultivation. However, failing to provide adequate lighting at the necessary points in a dense canopy is bound to result in suboptimal crop yields. For instance, using more toplight modules will only lead to a bigger electricity bill while the lower parts of the plants will still not receive the proper amount of light.
