For growers of cut flowers and pot plants, a grow light installation has two important added values: year-round production, and quality gains. With year-round cultivation, growers are able to supply their customers optimally and stand up to the competition. The quality gains translate directly into better products – for example more buds and heavier plants – and a more uniform crop. This in turn contributes to higher turnover and more reliable delivery.
The development of new grow light technologies – such as LED lighting and hybrid lighting (a combination of LED and HPS) – has created new possibilities for growers of cut flowers and pot plants. For example, increased light intensity can be achieved with less energy consumption, and growers can limit radiant heat. The crop also has more control options, and in many cases growers are able to reduce the use of chemical inhibitors.
The rise of LED lighting and the many possibilities it brings along with it mean that growers need more knowledge on using grow light. How much energy can I actually save? Which is the best light spectrum for me to use to steer my crop? And how can I maintain optimal leaf temperature in my crop?
