The newest TLED modules offer significant advantages in promoting plant growth. They emit light at a wide angle and high uniformity, which improves the color of the plants on the whole rack. This also results in more uniform sized plants. The laboratory manager Kerry commented that, "For our bare-root seedlings, the plants are more robust and the rooting rate has also improved."
Moreover, the TLED’s can reduce power consumption by 40%. Because the LEDs produce less heat, they do not disrupt the climate in the tissue cultivation lab, reducing the need for air conditioning. "Compared to traditional fluorescent lights, Philips' TLED’s allow us to reduce the height of planting racks by half", Peter said. "This means we can install more racks, expanding the floor space of 6,000 m2 by 30%."
Peter is extremely happy with Philips and this new product. "Our Philips key account manager keeps in close contact with us. At the same time, we can always rely on the professional consulting services of Philips Horticulture experts and technological support," he said.
