Roses under Philips LED lighting

Philips announces that three major cut-rose producers from Belgium and The Netherlands have installed GreenPower toplighting and are using Philips’ light recipes to obtain significant improvements.

LED toplighting is 50% more efficient in converting electricity to light than high pressure sodium (HPS) systems that have been prevalent in the market. The new solution allows growers to give crops the optimum light levels, reducing radiated heat and increasing yields. Plant quality is improved because each plant gets the right light spectrum for optimal growth and development.

Growers can also reduce operational costs, seeing up to 42% energy savings compared to HPS lighting, lower installation costs and maintenance costs.
