- Signify to provide Philips Greenpower LED production module managed with the Philips GrowWise Control System, ensuring best quality, yield and taste
- Planet Farms’ vertical farm is entirely automated – the consumer is the first to touch the crop
- Signify and Planet Farms started collaborating in 2018
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, is expanding its collaboration with Planet Farms, a leading European operator of vertical farms based in Italy. Thanks to the latest agreement, Europe’s largest vertical farm will boost the quality and yield of the crops using the Philips GreenPower LED production module managed by the Philips GrowWise Control System. This enables Planet Farms to produce and deliver the tastiest aromatic herbs and lettuce to its customers in Italy all year round.
Signify has also reached an agreement to provide horticultural LED grow lights to an additional five vertical farms that Planet Farms is planning to build in different European countries in the coming years, including Switzerland and the UK.
The Philips Greenpower LED production module, Signify’s latest horticultural LED innovation for vertical farming, helps growers optimize multilayer crop cultivation. By managing the lights with Philips GrowWise Control System, growers can easily create and run custom light recipes on dimmable and color-controllable modules to meet the needs of different crops and growth phases. This gives growers the ability and flexibility to create and control their own time-based light recipes and improve crop results and operational efficiency in closed, climate-controlled cultivation facilities
