Energy-efficient, LED (Light-emitting diodes) grow lights are lighting the future of agriculture. They are not only economic in their use but they produce better plants as well, in comparison to all traditional lighting options.
One of the advantages of LED grow lights compared to traditional lighting solutions is the ability to match the light to the needs of plants by fine tuning the light spectrums. When set side-by-side with the traditional HPS (high-pressure-sodium) systems, LEDs win in terms of energy efficiency, the quality of plants cultivated as well as environmental friendliness.
LEDs are simple but powerful, energy-efficient plant growth lamps in comparison to the predominantly used HPS lights that are gradually being perceived as bulky yet less robust. HPS lamps have a shorter life span which makes them more expensive in the long run. The heat emitted by HPS lamps is sometimes good and effective in greenhouse settings but makes them practically useless for vertical farms or growth chambers. LEDs are faster switching, more compact and are perceived as more beneficial for the environment. In addition, LED grow lights release less incandescent heat which affects the moisture and nutrition requirements of plants. The small amount of heat that is emitted is emitted upwards and away from plants unlike with HPS where the heat goes directly onto them increasing the leaf surface temperature and sometimes burning the plants.
This collection of LED’s are sourced from all over the world for their quality and reliability, they are priced to suit most budgets and backed by 2 to 3 Year solid warranties and service.
