Solid-state LED lighting offers a number of benefits to the horticulture industry, including increased yields, earlier flowering, faster root growth/ germination, better control of plant growth, and more economical use of space. LED lighting is also highly energy-efficient, helping horticultural producers to lower electricity consumption, especially during the high consumption periods of autumn and winter. Philips GreenPower LED toplighting solution is the next step in the development and application of dedicated light recipes to increase production and improve crop quality. With this introduction year round production is in reach for every greenhouse grower. Thanks to this, the GreenPower LED toplighting solution is a nominee for the GreenTech Innovation Award 2014!
