Coupled with a drive for innovation, it’s easy to see how they are able to consistently create lights which empower growers to produce crops that taste better, last longer, and take less energy to grow.
LED Grow Lights - Advantages
Indoor and greenhouse growers who are contemplating the proper lighting equipment for their facilities inevitably arrive at the dilemma of HID versus LED. HID lights are high-intensity discharge lights, which include high-pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH). Many myths surround the use of LED lamps for indoor and greenhouse commercial growth.
LED is a highly energy-efficient lighting technology and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting, however, not all LED lighting technologies are created equally. There are underpowered and inferior low-cost LED lamps on the market. Their poor performance negatively (and unfairly) affects the overall perception of genuinely reliable high-powered and high-performing units from market leaders. This is one reason why growers may be skeptical about LED technology.
High-pressure sodium (HPS) lighting was revolutionary in its day. It succeeded in boosting yield but was hard to control. HPS fixtures are hot, inflexible, and power-intensive with a spectrum that is not necessarily optimized for plant cultivation. LED technology enables you to control growth in ways that HPS simply can’t deliver.
