Led plant growth lights do you really understand?

LED plant growth light


Since the beginning of the 21st century, the rapid development of the city has led to a significant reduction in the agricultural area. In addition, the harvesting efficiency of crops will vary depending on the season (summer/winter) or the regional average temperature (hot/cold). Therefore, scientists, landowners or stakeholders of different interests are seeking new ways of planting. The entire environment in which plants grow is gradually being moved indoors into the room. This change can be traditional soil cultivation or hydroponics.



 What are the advantages of LED plant lighting?


Energy efficiency

LED plant lights are much more energy efficient than incandescent, HID or CFL lamps. LED lights only need 2-19 watts of power, which is 25%-80% more energy efficient than standard lighting systems.


2. Longer life cycle

LEDs have a life expectancy of 10 times longer than compact fluorescent lamps and longer than traditional incandescent bulbs (CFLs). Although the initial cost of LED lamps is more expensive than other lamps, over time, lamps other than LEDs may need to be replaced more frequently, and the energy cost of LED lamps will decrease over time, achieving energy cost benefits. .


3. Targeted wavelengths

The market offers more options for targeted wavelengths that can be optimized for growing flowers and vegetables. It is essential that specific plants require a specific spectrum of light in order to grow efficiently. For example, red light promotes plant growth and flowering, while blue light helps build strong stems and shorten lengths, thereby enhancing the health of the entire plant.

LED plant growth lamps generate much less heat than other lamps (3.4 Btu/hr, compared to 85 BTU/hour for incandescent bulbs), which reduces the cost of installing additional cooling systems to avoid damaging crops .


The LED plant growth lamp is a lamp that emits a special wave of light. It is composed of four colors of light, red, yellow, blue and green. These lights are suitable for plant photosynthesis absorption. The plant growth lamp adopts mature energy-saving lamp technology. A large number of test results prove that in the case of greenhouse temperature guarantee, it can promote the photosynthesis of plants and achieve the purpose of increasing production and income. Therefore, the energy-saving plant growth lamp is an indispensable light-filling device in the anti-season cultivation.


The LED plant production lamp can solve the problem of lack of sunshine in the vegetable greenhouse, rain, fog and fog, so that the plant has a high fruit setting rate, good fruit shape and no deformed fruit. Tests have shown that plant growth lamps in winter greenhouses increase vegetable yield by 12%-19%, and flowers and fruit vegetables are listed for 7-15 days in advance, increasing flower vividness and improving the sweetness and taste of fruit vegetables.


LED plant lighting is an important artificial light source in facility agriculture, and it is used more and more in various agricultural projects. As a leading LED brand, Shanghai Surrey has invested heavily in the development of innovative plant lighting sources and has provided tailor-made plant lighting solutions for horticultural producers by seeking a unique “growth formula” for plant growth.


In recent years, smog weather has occurred frequently in the north, and the number of hours of light per year has decreased, which does not provide enough natural light. The ideal artificial light environment has become an essential condition for efficient crop production. Compared with traditional fluorescent lamps and high-pressure sodium lamps, LEDs have higher luminous efficiency, less energy consumption, and obvious energy-saving advantages; longer service life and overall cost savings. At the same time, Shanghai Surrey's LED “light formula” combination module for different plants and different application sites provides the most suitable light source for plant growth, which can effectively increase plant yield and improve product quality.
