Installing the Philips GreenPower LED grow lights over their hydrangea area, Costa noted an overall improved crop quality along with:
• Reduced crop cycle by 2-3 weeks • Optimized plant photosynthesis with the daily light requirement, which resulted in improved coloration of red hydrangea
• Precise and reliable scheduling • Easier to manage the crop because of the low heat radiation of Philips LED toplighting
• Reduced application of PGRs by 10% while keeping crop compact Growing under the LEDs greatly improves their crop scheduling.
Now Costa can be assured he will have beautiful hydrangea on time and ready to ship even with the unpredictable winter conditions in British Columbia. Costa sees great potential growing under LEDs and is now testing different varieties and different crops. “I’m very happy with the Philips [LED] lights that we have here and [have] tested different crops so it’s a game-changer for our company.”
