Lighting for greenhouse vegetables has multiple benefits for growers. Increased production, higher-quality produce, and the option of year-round production are all important issues for greenhouse vegetable growers. Other benefits include better risk distribution and increased ability to plan, which means more certainty for customers and staff.
The emergence of new grow light techniques is creating new opportunities for greenhouse vegetable growers. Developments in light sources and light recipes give growers better control over crop yields and characteristics. The use of LED lighting and hybrid lighting (a combination of HPS and LED) makes it possible to achieve higher light intensity with lower energy costs, and without increased radiant heat.
In practice, however, we have found that insufficient knowledge of the right light recipe and the impact of grow light on your specific crop are still the biggest barriers to getting started with new grow light technologies.
Hortilux’s account managers and Grow Light Performance Consultants are here to help. You can take advantage of the knowledge and experience that Hortilux and its partners possess.
