We are seeing that growers have a great need for knowledge on the right way to use LED lighting, on issues such as proven results for the crop, sustainability gains, and return on investment. The webinar ‘Growing successfully with LED’ by Greentech and Hortilux will provide answers to a lot of questions! Tune in on 15 June 10:00u CET.
This is essential to consider when upgrading your HPS grow light system to hybrid or Full LED. It has consequences for the crop development, the evaporation of the crop and the energy input in the greenhouse.
Grow light is one of the most crucial production resources for a greenhouse horticulture business, so it's only logical that, as a grower, you will want to get the maximum return from your grow light installation. Good and regular maintenance – preferably in the time around crop rotation – is therefore a must. It means that you are assured of the optimum quantity of grow light, and thus of maximum production.
Hortilux introduces new HORTILED® Top grow light systems
In the coming years, many growers will be adding LED grow light to their existing HPS grow light systems, creating hybrid grow light systems. There are a wide range of reasons for beginning to use a hybrid grow light system. They are often related to new cultivation and production goals, or to the possibilities and limitations that the greenhouse presents (for example higher energy costs and/or limited energy capacity).
LED is hot and definitely no longer a thing of the future. This has become evident from, among other things, a survey by Hortilux among growers. Interest levels in LED appears to be very, very high. At the same time, some questions and challenges remain, too.
