Considering LED Tubes to Optimize Plant Growth?

If you are considering LED tubes to optimize plant growth, choosing the correct light source for your needs is essential. And as we all know, natural sunlight is the cheapest source available, however for the horticulture industry, it is not always attainable in sufficient quantities. Therefore, the use of artificial light has become very common in order to increase crop production and quality.

LED lights is a flexible and efficient way to give your plants and crops the light they need to grow. LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL) is said to boost productivity in greenhouse and plant-factory operations and reduce energy consumption. LED sources can produce light at the specific wavelengths that optimize plant growth, and a number of universities and commercial enterprises worldwide are pursuing further research on the topic.

Growers like Sustainable Local Foods use LED lighting to produce plants year round while keeping costs down.

How can LED lighting add value to your crops?
- Increased production
- Shortening of the total growth cycle
        - Better plant uniformity
        - Better space utility
- Improved plant quality
- Energy savings
- Better germination rate
- Higher multiplication factor
- Higher survival rate in rooting
- Improved/controlled stretching process
- Accelerated hardening phase

All of which can result in increased profit for you!
