Man hjælper altså ikke sine planter ved at give dem LED vækstlys 24 * 7.
Horticultural lighting is heating up the SSL market due to its ability to maximize crop yields, whether the light is produced in the visible or UV spectrum.
UV LEDs can add to the benefits that are already proven in LED-based horticultural lighting, targeting spectral energy to plant needs and reducing energy usage relative to HID lighting.
So, what’s so great about UV LEDs? According to DNA Group, ultraviolet LEDs are about to take over the horticultural supplemental lighting market as a replacement for mercury bulbs. Most plants are thirsty for UV light to some degree, and growers are thirsty for a product in this category that won’t scorch their plants, break the bank, or harm employees. Strategically applied UV light (especially UVB) increases THC and terpene levels in cannabis, enhances flavor and visuals of lettuces and herbs, makes strawberries and tomatoes redder and more nutritious, and can double the shelf life of produce. Emily Vaughn of DNA Group will say that it is the foundational biology that causes these benefits, explain why UV LEDs beat the alternatives, cover any worker safety concerns, and help you make an educated purchase if you’re considering these products for your farm.
