Most gardeners are well aware that insect populations are in trouble in many countries around the world. However, the extent and impacts of such losses could be much worse than many of us imagined. Based on recent research studies, it appears the decline in numbers and diversity is accelerating, so it’s worth examining why this is happening and what we as individual gardeners can do about it.View Article
In my work as an agriculture consultant, I make the argument all the time that the way we are growing and eating food is the central problem that we face in the world today. It is no small statement. Indeed, issues ranging from hunger and environmental toxicity to health care and climate change can be positively impacted by finding points of collaboration within and between our diet, the way we grow food, and the way we approach public health.View Article

POWERSUN DE BALLAST 1000W 120 / 240V HPS BULB INCLUDED
HIGH QUALITY – HIGH PERFORMANCE – HIGH RESULTS
Each ballast uses a high temperature, resin-sealed component board for entirely silent operation without a fan. The units are burned-in at the factory for approximately twelve hours to ensure maximum reliability.
Ballasts use a micro-processor similar to your home computer. This microprocessor allows the ballast to run halide or sodium lamps. It is programmed for a «soft-start» and does not require an initial surge of power to light the lamp. This increases the lamp life and allows the end-user to start multiple ballasts at the same time without tripping breakers.
- High-efficiency electronic ballast
- No acoustic resonance
- Lower harmonic distortion
- High output and improved spectrum
- Driver efficiency at full power: 95-96%
- Dimmable and Multi-Wattage with boost
- Completely sealed against dust and moisture
- Completely silent, light-weight and high energy-efficient
