This dynamic lighting solution is the latest innovation in Philips successful GreenPower LED solutions range. Growers and researchers can now grow a variety of crops under a variety of LED lighting spectra and intensities with just one LED system. That means they can now work with dynamic light recipes as invented by Philips to meet the specific needs of specific crops, flowers and plants. A recipe combines the following elements: light spectrum, intensity, illumination moment, uniformity and positioning. Using a recipe, a grower can steer specific plant characteristics, from compactness, color intensity and branch development to flowering and more to improve results.
For instance, some plants benefit from different lighting spectra and intensities during different phases of growth, like the red coloration of lettuce. These elements can also be used to stimulate stretching or stem elongation to prevent a crop from becoming too long and floppy.
