As the cutting-edge lighting industry of today's lighting, LED lighting has changed the pattern of the current lighting market. LED chip technology is used in every industry.
With the gradual maturity of the LED lighting industry, more and more attention is paid to the quality of LED lights, and various product quality certifications that follow have also begun to become popular. The first to bear the brunt is the related quality certification of LED lamps, such as LED bulbs, LED tubes, LED downlights, LED spotlights, LED panel lights, LED grow lights, LED fill lights, LED car lights, LED high bay lights, and LED tunnel lights; It even includes the LED drive power supply, and the certification of some components of the LED. However, domestic and foreign standards are not acceptable, and there are product certification and testing certifications. Chinese certification generally includes 3C certification, CQC certification, and energy conservation and environmental protection certification, while international certification generally includes CB certification and CE certification.
Smart agricultural plant factories have become popular this year. By adjusting LED lighting, moisture, and nutrients, crops are moved from outdoors to indoors, providing the best growth environment for plants, and efficiently combining LED lighting, agricultural planting, and other technologies to build a Smart plant factory. It is most popular in vegetable planting, medicine planting, succulent planting, and flower planting applications. LED grow lights have become the best lighting fixtures for everyone to supplement light for plants. In addition to providing a suitable growth environment for plants, LED lighting can also accelerate their growth rate and increase nutritional value, while avoiding environmental interference. For those countries where the climate is not suitable for plant growth or land is limited, plant LED lighting can be said to be one of the best choices.
Russia's super-large LED planting greenhouse, as large as 40 football fields
LLC Agro-Invest, a Russian greenhouse agricultural product production company, uses LED plant lighting to grow tomatoes and cucumbers. It covers an area of about 25 hectares and a greenhouse with 40 football fields. This project is by far the largest horticultural LED lighting project with a large number of goals. Increase the output and save 50% energy compared with the traditional high-pressure sodium lamp.
Irina Meshkova, vice president and chairman of Agro-Invest, said that LED plant lighting is definitely the future trend. LED products can provide the most suitable light for plants at the time and location where plants need the most light. Compared with traditional lighting, it is greatly reduced. The resulting heat production is because LEDs also increase the output of agricultural products in the weaker months of the year, and can also reduce a lot of energy consumption, showing the global trend of large-scale plant lighting.
Growing vegetables in Dutch greenhouses
Greenhouse planting and LED lighting technology are used to grow vegetables. On April 12, 2017, a Chinese solar greenhouse was completed and put into use in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands.
The construction of this greenhouse was initiated by the Dutch "International Facility Horticulture Enterprise Alliance" (PIB Horticulture), Wageningen University and Research Center and Delphy and other 4 units undertook, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Shandong Shouguang Vegetable Group Co., Ltd. co-organized, the Netherlands Funded by the Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Rotterdam-The Hague Metropolitan Region (MRDH). The idea of the project is to integrate the advantages of Chinese and Dutch greenhouses, to facilitate the study of the application of Dutch greenhouse technology in Chinese solar greenhouses, and to achieve the upgrade and optimization of planting technology in solar greenhouses. In short, it is to implant the "core" of Dutch agricultural technology into the "skin" of China's solar greenhouse, so that it can not only adapt to China's climate and market conditions but also increase the output of agricultural products and food safety.
LED grow lights grow flowers in Michigan, USA
Founded in 1946, Walters Gardens has grown from a farm of fewer than 5 acres to a multimillion-dollar company with 200 employees, more than 1,500 acres, and 500,000 square feet of greenhouses. Walters Gardens exports more than 18 million perennial strains each year and supplies them to garden markets, wholesalers, landscape companies, and municipal agencies in the United States and Canada. Through technological innovation and achieving excellent business development, Walters Gardens has become a leader in the perennial plant production market. In August 2014, Walters Gardens contacted the LED plant lighting team to discuss lighting experiments on multiple species including coreopsis, echinacea, vanadium root, lavender, sedum, etc. Experiments have found that LEDs can improve the growth quality of perennial plants, especially in the winter production season. In addition, Windemuller is very interested in finding a way to control the growth cycle, so that we can achieve accurate time supply, better meet trade needs, and reduce the total loss rate.
