Impacts of LED Technology on Horticultural Lighting


“LED lighting can contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint of horticultural products, due to the high efficiency with which they convert electricity in light. However, the largest impact of LED lighting for greenhouse horticulture will be in the possibilities LED offer to provide the light colours the plant requires, depending on the developmental stage of the plant and the time of the day. In this way, we can steer pot plants to become more compact, flowers to form long shoots and tomatoes to produce tastier fruits. Our challenge is to find the proper dynamic lighting recipes for this!”
