Philips toplighting grow lights used in state-of-art, high-tech grow facility
Learn how Michigan Pure Med in Marshall, Michigan is using Philips LED toplighting grow lights in their state-of-the-art, high-tech grow facility. Chief Cannabis Officer, Chad Zaki, explains the benefits of growing under Philips LEDs including key benefit that Philips GreenPower LEDs radiate minimal heat which makes it easier to manage the growing climate.
When we started looking at LEDs the best in class that we found was really Philips… the measure of the efficacy was one of the highest in the industry.
Why grow with LED?
Raise the quality of your cannabis crop
By using a dedicated light recipe for cannabis, plant characteristics can be steered. You can steer certain specific compounds meeting your customers requirement and differentiate yourself in the market.
Predictable production is key
By using LED light, the climate in the greenhouse or sole source facility can be controlled more easily. LED light comes with hardly any heat; thus the climate can be steered more easily. This results in consistent quality with the right composition of compounds, the same quantity year-round to simplify logistical planning and guarantee reliable manufacturing. You will harvest right when you need it free of contamination and without the use of pesticides.
High sustainable production
Growing your cannabis with the use of LED will generate higher yield per square meter compared to growing with other light sources. The right light optimizes photosynthesis and flower production and improves your numbers. Furthermore it uses the lowest possible energy input with a maximum production per Watt, a minimal use of water and nutrients, and a great working environment.
Philips GreenPower LED toplighting linear
The Philips toplighting linear grow light is a supplemental light solution that enables year-round growing in greenhouse and indoor grow operations.
Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact
For your light-loving crops, the Philips LED toplighting compact is a UL/CSA-approved grow light that delivers high light levels in growth-stimulating spectrum.
Philips GreenPower LED interlighting
Delivering light below the canopy of a crop, the Philips GreenPower LED interlighting is a bi-directional grow light that delivers light to lower leaves. Philips LED interlighting is ideal for tall crops with broad canopies like hemp, tomatoes and cucumbers.
Philips LED Production Module
Add growth-stimulating light to your closed-environment, multi-layer cultivation setup with the Philips GreenPower LED production module. Low radiative heat allows placement for lettuce, leafy greens, herbs as well as tissue culture and seedlings.
Why choose LED over HPS?
Control heat and light separately
High levels of radiant heat can stress or even burn the plants. With LED lighting you can control heat and light separately. You can apply higher levels of light to plants with 67% less radiant heat than HPS lighting. A lower crop temperature means you will have to raise the ambient temperature in your greenhouse and manage the related change in humidity.
More light, less radiant heat
One important aspect is understanding how to grow your crops with LED lighting. When comparing the energy balance of LED lighting versus HPS lighting, the conversion of electricity into light and heat is different. Using the same amount of energy, LED-modules deliver more light and less radiant heat. This does call for new growth strategies for high-wire crops.
