A few days ago, many reports announced that two French vegetable growers have installed 100W LED plant lighting in their greenhouses to help grow cucumbers throughout the year.
According to the news, both growers installed LED plant lights in their new cucumber greenhouse (located in the Nantes region of France). The two are the first growers in France to use LED lamps to grow steel cucumbers, demonstrating their leadership as a member of the grower cooperative.
Experts point out that LED lighting can help increase crop yields, and because LEDs don't generate too much heat as the light increases, LED lighting also allows growers to control light and temperature more precisely. These features ensure the high-quality production of the crop throughout the year as efficiently as possible.
In fact, LED lamps to provide better heat and light balance. Compared to high-pressure sodium lamps, LED lamps can greatly increase production without generating heat. According to calculations, the 20,000-square-meter semi-enclosed greenhouse is illuminated by LED lights, and the output will be 30% higher than the output of traditional greenhouses without LED lights.
LED lighting will help companies improve energy efficiency and reduce production gaps, especially in the winter when revenues are greater. This plays a key role in maintaining the company's position in the market throughout the year. At the same time, it has alleviated a problem of shortage of vegetables on the market. Undoubtedly, LED plant lights are constantly changing our lives.
