As the leader in LED lighting technology, Philips also leads in the application of LED lighting in agriculture and provides complete lighting solutions. The Centre started cooperating with Philips horticulture LED lighting at the beginning of 2012 by bringing advanced LED lighting solutions into the tissue culture laboratory for multiple crops. In order to ensure that experiments can be replicated, the Centre designed a number of different lighting solution combinations for different experimental materials. The Philips plant specialists visited the site, observed the lighting conditions currently available in the Centre, and recommended an ideal lighting solution based on accumulated experience and practical needs.
After a few rounds of experiments by research staff in the Centre’s tissue culture laboratory, they found that the rooting rate for many plants had improved significantly and the cost of energy consumption for lighting and airconditioning was greatly reduced.
