Currently, Philips,the global leader in the lighting industry, in collaboration with Green Sense Farms (GSF) which is the agribusiness in Chicago established the indoor farms where the LED grow light is used for specific crops , which is one of the world ‘s largest indoor farm. After using Philips LED ” Light Recipes ” to optimize production , this innovative farm model allows GSF to have 20 to 25 times the harvest a year, and saves 85% of energy. The results will significantly improve crop yields , reduce operational costs, while able to continuously provide consumers with locally grown fresh vegetables in a year .
According to United Nations estimates that global population will increase by about 2.5 billion by 2050, 80% of the population will live in cities. At the same time , 80% of the arable land is already being used . Moreover, extreme weather around the world caused the crops affected and lead to rising food prices. With the growing concern for food production, it is increasingly difficult to meet the development of the city for agriculture, which makes that the relevant companies continue to seek innovative growing techniques to achieve indoor cultivation without daylight conditions in the neighboring city or town .
Plant perception of light is pretty different form human ,the plants can more efficiently utilize the light with specific wavelength and differently react the light with different wavelengths,of which Philips has a profound understanding , since 1936 , Philips Lighting has been committed to the development of agriculture . With the advent of LED technology, Philips has been adjusting and optimizing the ” customized light formula” to respond to the specific needs of specific crops. Philips is committed to cooperating with universities , agribusiness and commercial partners and research institutions, such as together with Hort Americas provide support and services for the GSF project to jointly meet the special requirements of growers . Further, since the temperature of LED grow light is lower , which can be placed in the best position near the plant so that the plant parts can be obtained to ensure consistent illumination.Browsing http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/bid33-1.htm for more information about LED grow light.
