Other sell watts, lux or µmols, we provide our customers with higher productivity
Through light, we deliver increases in yield and quality, energy savings and enable new plant growing applications, such as vertical farms. The core in our technology, is the research based light spectrum, which is based on years of extensive research, countless trials and tons of feedback and support from our customers. Our light is richer in its amount of colors, than generic LEDs for horticulture and also traditional greenhouse lights or fluorescent lights. The composition of the light spectrum is designed to drive clear growing goals of customers, for example vegetative leaf growth or flowering. The composition of the light spectrum is wide, as it typically covers the full visible spectrum and beyond (UV-A and far red also include in many spectra), whereas typical generic LEDs only use “narrow” red and blue LEDS which only impact plants light perception on a very small area of what is needed.
