Nowadays, it is impossible to imagine the modern greenhouse cultivation sector without grow lights. There are various reasons for choosing a lighting system. Year-round cultivation is the reason cited most often, because buyers want a high quality product throughout the year. The decision to acquire a lighting system is easily made because the cost of the system can be recovered within a short period of time with year-round cultivation.
Sustainable plant growth
The greenhouse crop cultivation sector uses lighting systems for two reasons: to provide growing and quality development. Growing light is needed for growth (through photosynthesis), while development light is needed for the plant’s quality (form and flowering). Lighting is useful for many different growers as a means of artificially extending the period of daylight.
LED lighting is increasingly being used in the horticultural sector. It is a sustainable and efficient option because on the one hand it has the potential to counter certain climatic effects that limit cultivation and on the other hand it is able to speed up different cultivation processes. With LED lighting, the grower can change the light spectrum of the lamp, allowing him to choose the most suitable light for any type of crop. This makes LED lighting an interesting alternative with great advantages and low running costs.
