LED lighting in addition to providing a suitable environment for plant growth, but also can speed up the growth rate, increase the nutritional value, while eliminating the interference of the external environment, the climate is not suitable for plant growth or land limited country, plant lighting is one of the best choice.
Russia's super large LED greenhouses have 40 football fields
Russia's greenhouse agricultural production company LLC Agro-Invest LED lighting plant for planting tomatoes and cucumbers, covers an area of approximately 25 hectares of greenhouse, 40 football fields, this project is by far the largest horticultural LED lighting project, large increase in yield, and 50% than the traditional high pressure sodium lamp saves energy.
Agro-Invest, vice president and chairman of Irina Meshkova, LED plant lighting is definitely the trend of the future, LED products can be time and position of light in plant need, provide the most suitable lighting plants, compared with the traditional lighting, greatly reducing caused by heat, because LED also improves the year of light agricultural production is weak month, can also reduce the amount of energy consumption, shows a large plant in the global trend of lighting.
Canadian mahjong legalization, expecting LED lighting to save huge electricity consumption
Since Canada in July 2018 is about to come true the legalization of marijuana, Canada's marijuana manufacturers began mass production, but consumes large quantity of marijuana plants, in order to reduce the production cost of marijuana, technology companies have begun to study LED lighting technology, is expected to reduce the energy consumption required for planting marijuana, is expected to use LED lighting will reduce electricity. 50% of the cost of lighting.
According to the research pointed out that the average production costs 2 thousand pounds of marijuana and 2 thousand kwh of electricity, equivalent to an ordinary family in Canada two months of electricity, and the Canadian province of Ontario has 47 out permit cannabis producers, it is estimated that the annual consumption of cannabis producers of electricity will be accounted for in Ontario province 1% of the total electricity consumption.
The proportion of different types and colors of LED lights can change the growth mode of plants and achieve the goal of controlling the yield and quality of plant growth. Taking cannabis as an example, four hydrogen cannabinol content in cannabis can be reduced by adding red light and reducing the blue light, and vice versa.
The use of LED plant lights in New Zealand greenhouse to improve the quality of tomatoes
The LED technology can also help farmers everywhere, allowing them to respond more accurately to climate change. Taking tomato planting as an example, PHILPS lighting works with Gourmet Mokai of New Zealand cuisine group to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of tomatoes using the LED growth lamp. In January 2018, the new LED lamp was installed in the greenhouse of 4500 square meters (about 1316 square meters) in North Island.
Gourmet Mokai uses New Zealand's natural conditions to plant plants, uses geothermal steam to heat up, and uses water culture to grow tomatoes. Then LED lamps are installed between plants and plants. Gourmet food production director Roelf Schreuder pointed out that it is hoped to improve the taste of tomatoes, the content of vitamin C and the shelf life of the tomato through a specific LED spectrum.
Holland growers use LED auxiliary lighting to stimulate the growth of lilies
Gardening LED lighting tests were conducted in October 2017 in the village of Poeldijk lilies growers in the village of southern Holland. It is reported that Together2Grow and Pulaisai cooperation will LED lighting as an auxiliary greenhouse high-pressure sodium lamp, to the cultivation of varieties of Lily Virginia for test. The results showed that the output of lilies increased by 20% with the aid of 7 weeks of solid-state lighting.
The test range control in the lighting environment under the existing high pressure sodium lamp, high pressure sodium lamp and can provide 70 moles/m2/sec photosynthetic photon flux density (light intensity), solid-state lighting test, each 1000W high pressure sodium lamp next to the installation of 7 sets of Plessey Attis LED light, photosynthetic photon flux density is increased to 130 moles/m2/sec. The experimental results show that in the solid state lighting environment, the output of the flower is increased and the flower is more flourishing.
In addition to 20% of the increase in production, the lilies under LED gardening were even more than 2 grams per rhizome. It is reported that the LED lighting system combines far infrared, ultra red and blue light LED. Pulaisai said that the efficiency of the LED lamp is 40% higher than that of high pressure sodium lamp.
