Large-scale growers have achieved significant energy savings by using Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamps to grow strawberries in their greenhouses. Use the flowering lamp to boost your strawberry crop results by preventing budding or expediting flowering. Compared to incandescent lamps, these advanced LED grow lights for strawberries reduce energy usage by up to 90%. With a custom LED grow light recipe, growers have also seen improved elongation in strawberry plants. All in all making earlier harvests and high yields possible. This gives you a key business advantage when growing fruits indoors, by getting your crops to market earlier in the season.

Strawberries are becoming popular crops for vertical farming facilities. One advantage when you use LED grow lights for strawberries in this set-up is your ability to steer certain characteristics, such as the taste of the crop. At Philips GrowWise Center, our vertical farming research facility, we were able to achieve 20% higher Brix values (sugar content) for sweeter tasting strawberries with our custom LED light recipe. This could greatly increase preference for your strawberry crop.

Leverage proven results from Philips Light Recipes

Philips light recipes capture all the elements of lighting that steer plant growth when growing fruits indoors. They are the result of hundreds of trials and projects between, growers and researchers using Philips Horticulture Lighting to investigate how the LED grow light spectrum affects various crops and growing phases of plants. Today, we offer a wide array of dedicated grow light recipes, based on proven results for specific varieties, growth phases and cultivation set-ups.
