LED Plant Grow Lights – Increase Vegetable Yield


January 15, 2024

Every year, there will be a lot of cloudy and rainy weather in winter. As one of the five elements of vegetable growth, light is critical for vegetable growth. However, compared with fertilization, watering and temperature regulation, supplemental light has not been paid enough attention. This is in addition to insufficient knowledge with the growers to fill light related to the poor effect of light equipment also has a great relationship, today we will introduce to you the new light equipment - LED plant growth lights.

LED plant growth light is a new supplemental light facilities developed in recent years. Relative to the traditional field of use of artificial light source energy consumption, high operating costs and other shortcomings, LED plant growth lights with energy saving and environmental protection, small size, high photoelectric conversion efficiency, long life, light intensity and light quality can be adjusted and many other advantages.

Advantages and Features of LED Plant Grow Lights

1.Does not require a driver or cooling fan standard power socket connector.

2.Continuous irradiation of 12 to 16 hours a day can completely replace the sun.

3.Compared with other ordinary lighting equipment, LED plant grow light lamp line is gentle, will not make the young plants burn.

4.Compared with other plant lighting lamps can save 10% to 20% of the electricity cost.

5.The effect is very significant, the growth rate is significantly faster than the general natural growth of plants.

6.It can effectively solve the problem of lack of sunlight in winter in greenhouses, promote the chlorophyll, anthocyanin and carotene needed in plant photosynthesis, make fruits and vegetables harvested 20% earlier, increase the yield by 3~5%, and improve the sweetness of fruits and vegetables and reduce pests and diseases.

7.The wavelength of the light source is narrower. It can emit a specific wavelength of light, so you can control the color of light. Therefore, by irradiating plants individually with LED plant grow lights, plant varieties can be improved.

8.LED plant grow light has small power, but very high efficiency, because other lights emit full spectrum, that is to say, there are 7 colors, while plants need only red and blue light, therefore, most of the light energy of the traditional lights are wasted, so, the efficiency is extremely low. LED plant grow light can send out the specific red and blue light that plants need, so the efficiency is very high, that's why LED plant grow light a few watts of power than dozens of watts or even hundreds of watts of power of the light effect is better. Another reason is that the traditional sodium lamp spectrum inside the lack of blue light, and mercury lamps and energy-saving lamps inside the spectrum and the lack of red light, so the traditional lamp complementary light effect are much worse than the LED lights, and compared to the traditional lamps to save more than 90% of the electricity, the operating cost is greatly reduced.

Choosing LED Plant Lights

Pay attention to the following points.

1.different wavelengths of light for plant photosynthesis is different, plant photosynthesis requires light, wavelength in 400-700 nm. 400-500 nm (blue) light and 610-720 nm (red) for photosynthesis contributes the most.

2. Blue (470 nanometers) and red (630 nanometers) LED, just to provide the light needed by plants, blue light contributes to plant photosynthesis can promote the growth of green leaves, protein synthesis, fruit formation; red light can promote the growth of plant roots and stems to help flowering and fruiting and extend the flowering period, to play a role in increasing yields. Therefore, the more ideal choice is to use these two color combinations. In terms of visual effect, the red and blue combination of plant lights show pink color.

3.LED plant growth lights of red and blue LED ratio is generally 4:1 ~ 9:1 is appropriate, usually 6 ~ 9:1. Therefore, to achieve good results, you need to choose professional LED plant growth lights.
