90% recyclable and interchangeable design enables growers to simply upgrade and replace
Leading UK AgTech company Light Science Technologies (LST) has launched nurturGROW to the market, its new sustainable grow lighting product range, offering an innovative, high-performance and cost-effective solution for indoor farming, covering greenhouses, vertical farming, polytunnels and medicinal plants.
Created with four core component parts, the patent-pending nurturGROW range is made of high quality, durable materials to give growers the ideal balance between strength and optimal performance. 90% of the components are recyclable, minimising the amount of materials needed to drastically cut down on waste and reduce carbon footprint. Thanks to its sustainable, future proof design, 85% of nurturGROW is also reusable, allowing growers to easily upgrade components, cost effectively and with no downtime, making nurturGROW easy to maintain. Backed by a 25-year product lifecycle, it ensures indoor farmers maximise use of every element over a longer lifespan to generate maximum yields and save them a third on future costs.
Built for scale and sustainability
Thanks to its modular structure, the nurturGROW range consists of more than 30 different options with variable lengths of up to 2.78m, making it the longest luminaire on the market. It provides the scale needed to commercialise the right recipe and cut down on waste with both energy and space. With a high efficacy of up to 3.0 umol/J and up to 30-degree variance, growers can choose from 1000s of different light recipes to improve plant performance, from one of the widest ranges of recipes available on the market.
What's more, nurturGROW enables you to give back to the environment. As proud reforestation partners of One Tree Planted, they plant one tree for every LST product sold, as part of a mutual commitment to champion global reforestation efforts and raise awareness of the importance of ecosystem restoration.
In-house UK scientific and manufacturing expertise
nurturGROW features industry-leading, high performing LED lighting innovation by drawing on its own in-house manufacturing capabilities, assuring growers of nothing less than high quality and high performance grow lighting. This is supported by a successful tried and tested approach in real environments to prove nurturGROW's long-lasting lighting technology.
Backed by science, LST works with growers to create the perfect recipe for crop growth. Using light testing equipment and data gathered from LST's purpose-built laboratory, its in-house team of scientists can help identify the right spectral waveforms and PPFD levels by recreating various environment scenarios in one of its accredited grow chambers.
Grow more, with less
Founded in 2019, LST's approach from the beginning was to create a bespoke, fully integrated lighting solution which met key criteria for CEA farmers and growers: sustainability, cost effectiveness and high performance. Knowing that each growing environment has its own set of unique requirements, nurturGROW gives growers optimum control over their crops with the potential to deliver optimal yield and minimise both CAPEX and OPEX costs.
Craig Price, Operations Director at Light Science Technologies, said: "Being customer-focused by design means that as an experienced LED grow light partner, we understand every variable and can help indoor growers to design a sustainable solution that fits their unique growing parameters.
"This extends to adjusting the light recipe for growers, as nurturGROW will allow you to increase, decrease or change the recipe depending on preference, thanks to an interchangeable luminaire body.
"The unique aspect of our design also means that we have already allowed for future integration of sensor technologies, offering significant added value. By choosing to add in our new sensor technology, which is under development, indoor growers and farmers can look to control their environment in much more granular detail. This will enable them to reduce any sub-optimal performances, whether that be in any environmental controls or from the light itself."
