The challenge


Shanghai Dadi’s experience and ambition in tissue culture, require that high-quality seedlings grow stronger and more compact. Some special plant varieties may have a low rooting rate, which wastes production materials and increases production costs. In order to realize the greatest plant growth potential in tissue culture production, further improve product quality, and find a more energy-efficient and ecological tissue culture lighting solution.

The right lighting


With appropriate scientific rigor, a Shanghai Dadi tissue culture cultivation room was used to carry out the experiments, to  ensure that lighting was the only variable and all other environmental factors were consistent with those of normal production. Philips GreenPower LED Production Modules with different light spectra and intensities were used, creating different lighting areas.After several rounds of experiments, plants grown under the Philips GreenPower LED production modules were more compact and had greener leaves than those grown under normal fluorescent lights, indicating that the plants cultivated with Philips GreenPower LED were stronger. Shanghai Dadi was very satisfied with these results, specifically

the LED lighting’s promotion of plant growth and the cooperation with the Philips horticultural LED lighting team.



Cooperation between the two companies will continue in the hope of discovering more plant tissue culture applications that can be used in the large-scale industrial production.
