LumiGrow collaborates with leading agricultural research institutions to develop lighting strategies to benefit commercial growers. Discover new ways to grow plants with adjustable-spectrum LED solutions.
Previous work determined that light during the healing period influences morphology and quality of grafted tomatoes. Cool white fluorescent (CWF) at a photosynthetic photon flux of 100 μmol·m-2·s-1 is recommended for healing chambers. Light emitting diodes (LED) make possible optimizing the spectral requirements for healing.
Winter months in California have a Daily Light Integral (DLI) of 10-20, which is inadequate for optimal plant growth. To address this challenge, Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps are beginning to be used in preference over High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps for their higher energy efficiency and longevity.
At higher latitudes, cut flower growers rely on supplemental lighting for maximizing production in the darker months.
Horticultural LEDs have been proven to produce similar or better crops (in terms of yield and quality) compared with HPS; while also having longer lifespans, higher energy efficiencies & can be controlled in terms of spectral distribution & intensity.
This project sought to determine the optimum light level for cut gerbera production during the 2015-16 supplemental lighting season (ie. Nov. thru Feb.) at higher latitudes
