What is LED horticultural lighting and how is it used?

To totally replace daylight with artificial LED horticultural lighting for ultimate climate growth, this reduces the need for glass environments and opens conventional buildings to be used for growing.

To supplement natural daylight and raise grow light levels in order to enhance photosynthesis and improve the quality of plants.

To control the light period by extending the natural day length with artificial light

Light Quality:

The amount of light affects the photosynthesis process in the plant.

This process is a photochemical reaction within the chloroplasts of the plant cells in which

CO2 is converted into carbohydrate under the influence of the light energy.

Light quality regarding spectral composition of the light:

The spectral composition of the different wavelength regions (blue, green,

Yellow, red, far red or invisible e.g. UV or IR) is important for the growth, shape,

development and flowering (photo morphogenesis) of the plant. For the

Photosynthesis, the blue and red regions are most important.

Light duration:

 The timing / light duration which is also called photo period is mainly affecting the

flowering of the plants. The flowering time can be influenced by controlling the

photo period.
