To increase crop growth, there’s a very special formula you should use to fast-track growth for every crop. Looking into and optimizing your light recipe has shown to increase growth in specific varieties of plants. Along with also having a positive effect on the plants growth phases and cultivation stage.

So, what’s involved in the perfect light recipe:

  • Light level

The amount of light shed on a plant. You need to remember that some plants love high light levels, while others prefer much lower light levels. The light level is effectively the amount of light.

  • Spectrum

The spectrum is the range from ultraviolet to infra-red that influences plant growth. Plants are particularly sensitive to a mix of red and blue light.

  • Uniformity

Uniformity is how evenly the light is spread across all the crops. Keeping light uniform will ensure consistent plant growth.

  • Timing

A light recipe will specify when to turn the lighting on and off to get the best results – each plant will need light for different amounts of the day.

Our recommendation…

  • Higher yield
  • Shorter growth cycles
  • Energy savings
