Today LED lighting can stimulate plant growth by up to 40%. Durable and long lasting LEDs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors are the green alternative to standard horticultural lighting. They can significantly stimulate plant growth while drastically reducing energy consumption through the use of targeted lighting at 660 and 450 nanometers.
The features of LEDs for horticultural lighting such as small form factor, high efficiency and long life, provide flexibility for growers. Dimmable and controllable, LEDs are instant on when you need them and can easily be set in cycles that promote healthy plant growth.
Featured Product: OSLON SSL
- Ultra compact 1W device in 80°and 150° viewing angles
- Targeted spectra to increase chlorophyll absorption and photosynthesis in plants
- High efficiency in full range of colors (deep blue to far red)
This video explores LED based horticultural solutions using OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ Golden DRAGON Plus and OSLON SSL Hyper Red and Deep Blue LEDs. It details photosynthesis and the advantage of LEDs, while also describing specific LED products for horticultural applications.
In this edition of the LED Lighting News, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors explores the new trend of horticultural lighting, describing the perfect LEDs for this application, the Golden DRAGON Plus and OLSON SSL.
MSU Horticulture Lighting
In this edition of the LED Lighting News, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors provides insight into a research project with the MSU Department of Horticulture. The organizations have teamed up to study the effect of growing floriculture and vegetable crops in controlled environments under different spectra of LED light. These experiments will eventually help to understand the effect of the spectral quality of light on plant growth and morphology.
