To help growers achieve the best results for their crops, Philips Lighting has invented light recipes which combine the following elements: light spectrum, intensity, uniformity, timing and positioning. The Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamp 2.0 is available with two different spectral versions: one offers a combination of deep red and white (DR/W) and the other a combination of deep red/white/ far red (DR/W/FR). The DR/W light version inhibits flowering of short-day plants, and has for example been very effective with chrysanthemums. The DR/W/FR light version is ideal for photoperiodic lighting of bedding and perennials. It can extend the day or interrupt the night cycle to promote elongation of the stems of strawberries and stimulate flowering.
“Being the first to market with a flowering lamp almost seven years ago, the Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamp 2.0 pushes the boundaries of how growers can gain control of crop quality and yield for their customers even more,” said Udo van Slooten, business leader for Philips Lighting’s Horticulture business.
