Thanks to its 3.2 µmol/J efficiency, the Hortiled Top Vertex boasts a high light efficiency, resulting in increased production and/or energy savings. In addition, the level of up-front investment is accessible.
When developing the HORTILED Top, we chose to distribute the grow light over multiple LED light sources. This creates better light reception for both tall-growing crops and ornamental plants, giving you the highest yield from a micromol PAR.
In the coming years, many growers will be adding LED grow light to their existing HPS grow light systems, creating hybrid grow light systems. The design of a hybrid grow light installation depends on the grower’s objectives. We use these objectives as the foundation for the ideal light plan with the appropriate evenness and depth. We also help growers to find the optimal business case using our scenario calculation model. For example, in a number of these scenarios HPS fixtures can easily be replaced with LED fixtures, often without the need to modify the electrical installation and ground cables. This reduces the up-front investment, with the operational costs of the LED fixtures much lower as well.
Thanks to the developments in LED and hybrid grow light systems, growers are seeking the ideal LED spectrums for their crops. LED grow light means new opportunities for their crops. Reasons for choosing LED include an increased ability to steer on crop characteristics, less need for chemical growth regulators, and more consistent production. We assist growers and growers’ unions with setting up different types of LED tests so that together we can find the ideal LED spectrum.
Growers often see the many advantages that LED grow light offers, but are also aware that the purchasing costs for LED fixtures are higher than for HPS fixtures. We’re happy to work with you to come up with options. For example, we can tailor a grow light solution to the conditions attached to a potential subsidy application. In addition, we work our with financing partners to help growers find a leasing solution for grow light. This can drastically reduce the up-front investment for your new LED or hybrid grow light system.
