Switching Up Indoors - Why Growers World-wide Are Upgrading to LEDs

52% of commercial growers reported using LEDs as of 2020-an increase from 25% in 2016. This trend is expected to continue in the next decade. The sharp rise in LED-use among commercial growers is really two-fold: energy savings and complete optimization.

Choosing the Right LEDs for Your Greenhouse

Plants respond differently to various spectra so choosing the best LEDs for you will depend on your specific cultivation goals and crops, location and climate, and several other key considerations.

HYBRID LIGHTING STRATEGIES: ADVANTAGES, DISADVANTAGES AND GETTING STARTED

Research on the ideal lighting for greenhouse cultivation reveals a fundamental truth: LED systems are far more efficient and effective than their HPS counterparts.

What to Look for in a Greenhouse Light Plan

When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?

The Absorption and Action Spectrum and the Benefits of Green Light

Light has a complex relationship with plants. When the light touches a leaf, it can be absorbed by, reflected from, or transmitted through to other leaves. Plants appear green to us because they reflect and transmit slightly more green light than they do blue or red.

Supplemental Greenhouse Lighting: Hacking the Sun to Grow Your Business

Growers who are able to optimize the supplemental light they provide to plants can eliminate seasonal changes in production cycles, increase crop production, ensure crop consistency and grow quality plants year-round.

4-Sun LED Solar Simulator Dawns to Tackle Humanity's Challenges

Solar simulators-indoor lights that reproduce the sun's spectrum-take many forms and serve different purposes, including testing sunscreens, solar cell efficiencies and performance testing of aerospace materials.
