DLI Calculator

Light is a plant’s food. It is imperative that cultivator’s monitor the amount and type of food their plants receive, just as a nutritionist must monitor what an athlete eats. Each day there is a minimum amount of sunlight a plant must receive to meet their basic biological needs. The most common metric for this is Daily Light Integral (DLI), which measures the cumulative amount of PAR light energy that a surface receives over the course of a day. This metric gives cultivators insight into how much light is available for their plants, expressed as a Moles per Day value.
