Thanks to the technological advancements in agriculture. Plants now do not take long to grow. This means that producing organic food has become more easier for enthusiastic organic farmers as this shortens the time of growth compared to those that depend on sunlight. Any farmer should be eager to explore this new possibility and invest in it especially those that do indoor farming because it provides a long term economic advantage over conventional lighting. It’s also a more eco friendly solution with less maintenance costs.
What is a LED grow light?
LED grow lights for the horticultural industry are powerful LED fixtures, meaning they have the intensity and color spectrum required to stimulate plant growth. The most critical difference between horticultural LED systems and traditional lighting is that LED grow lights make it possible for the grower to control the spectral distribution. This has a great influence on both crop quality and production methods.
Why use LED grow lights in your farms?
- Long-term use due to long lifetime: In comparison with other illumination technologies, LED grow lights have a long lifetime. LED's have high efficiency and because they use low energy they can work up to 100,000 hours. LED grow lights also don’t stop working all of a sudden. They gradually emit less brightness, just before the end of their long lifetime, giving a signal to the users in advance. This helps the users make arrangements of new grow light kits.
- Targeted Wavelengths: The conditions inside the greenhouse atmosphere must be carefully regulated. The growth of plants must take place under the right temperature and light so that the photosynthesis process can occur naturally. There are particular wavelengths of light under which some plants are the most sensitive. LED grow lights use specific spectra to match those peak absorption ranges. Plant growth can be enhanced by targeted wavelength as it ensures that the least amount of energy is lost during the process of plant growth. LED lights can be installed at the two wavelengths that are closest to the ideal values.
- More light and less heat: LED lights, installed using grow light kits, emanate less heat than other lighting methods. This is of crucial importance because too much heat might damage the plants and may decrease growth that leads to decreased lifetime. LED technology ensures that less heat is emitted and the efficiency of light remains high. This ensures that the plants have the right atmosphere to grow.
- Increase product quality
Take control of your crop’s size, stretch, color or even taste. Being able to adjust light composition enables you to improve product quality in ways that are simply impossible with traditional lights. Additionally, using LED lighting means you can reduce the amount of chemicals needed in production.
Plants have a primary need for red light, which starts the photosynthetic process and impacts germination and florescence. Blue light is also essential as it controls plant size, stretch, red pigmentation and, in some cases, taste.
