The best LED grow lights for herbs in vertical farming

Many growers have built successful vertical farming facilities that grow herbs indoors under herb grow lights. LED lighting offers a number of benefits for growing sustainable food. By controlling the light, growers can germinate herbs quicker, grow roots faster and get bigger yields. Since LEDs run at cooler temperatures than other grow lights, they can be placed closer to the plant to encourage homogeneous growth. Ideal for growing herbs indoors with artificial light in vertical stacks. Our custom LED light recipes enable growers to steer flavor, appearance and other plant characteristics to meet specific consumer demands.

Philips LED grow lights for herbs help growers dramatically increase yield by up to 30% in their greenhouse. They also offer clear benefits in terms of the quality and consistency of crops.

Our custom LED light recipes allow you to further steer specific plant aspects, from shelf life to taste, to differentiate your herbs in the market.
