Plants use light for more than just photosynthesis. Light is used to control growth, signaling, metabolite accumulation, and other processes.
At a rudimentary level, low light conditions will result in poor quality plants because the plants lack sufficient energy. Conversely, plants grown at excessively high light levels can develop “sunburn”. Most commercial greenhouse crops are lit at moderate light levels to avoid these negative effects.
LumiGrow Smart Horticultural LEDs have dynamic control over intensity and spectrum so you can always target required light levels efficiently, while having the tools necessary to achieve quality and production goals demanded by the modern professional grower.
Changes in the ratio of red to blue light has been proven to affect plant morphology and physiology. Major research institutions, commercial growers, and plant science “think tanks” like the LumiGrow Research Group, are discovering the ways in which plants interact with light.
Research has shown that light intensity directly influences growth; and increases in light intensity will increase growth until the plant reaches its saturation point. LumiGrow works with major institutions to run trials and aggregate data to determine the optimal light intensities for your crops.
