LED lighting for flower farming

There is such a vast array of flowers and ornamental plants on the market that a given flower-growing greenhouse will, depending on the cultivated variety, necessarily pursue different agronomic goals: these might be a specific stem diameter or length, homogeneity, early flowering, good potted inflorescence compactness, a good-sized bud, sufficient colouring and so on.

So it follows that nurturing the growth of an ornamental crop can mean very different things depending on whether the target is a rose, chrysanthemum or geranium. This is because, biology aside, some flowers are appreciated for their long stems, others for short stems or the bunches they form in flowerbeds.

Light plays a huge role in modifying plant morphology. This concerns both the quantity of light (e.g. with chrysanthemums, in winter a smaller number of open flowers per cluster can be tolerated due to limited light availability) and its quality.

Our experts perform research and development to create lamps that ensure the best possible agronomic results in the greenhouse. We provide customers with close support to define just the right amount of total light to be introduced into the environment and the correct spectra mix (red/blue) according to plant physiology, production standards and market-specific quality.
