    Hemp & Specialty

    Why grow with LED?  



    Raise the quality of your  bio-based hemp and specialty crops


    By using a dedicated light recipe for bio-based hemp or specialty crops, plant characteristics can be steered. Y you can steer certain specific compounds meeting your customer’s requirement and differentiate yourself in the market.


    Predictable production is key


    By using LED light, the climate in the greenhouse or sole source facility can be controlled more easily. LED light comes with hardly any heat; thus the climate can be steered more easily. This results in consistent quality with the right composition of compounds, the same quantity year-round to simplify logistical planning and guarantee reliable manufacturing. You will harvest right when you need it free of contamination and without the use of pesticides.


    High sustainable production


    Growing your bio-based crops with the use of LED will generate higher yield per square meter compared to growing with other light sources. Whether you are growing hemp, hops or other specialty crops, LED grow lights can improve your yield per square meter compare to growing with other light sources. The right light optimizes photosynthesis and flower production and improves your numbers. Furthermore it uses the lowest  possible energy input with a maximum production per Watt, a minimal use of water and nutrients, and a great working environment.

    Why choose LED over HPS?

    Control heat and light separately


    High levels of radiant heat can stress or even burn the plants. With LED lighting you can control heat and light separately. You can apply higher levels of light to plants with 67% less radiant heat than HPS lighting. A lower crop temperature means you will have to raise the ambient temperature in your greenhouse and manage the related change in humidity.

    More light, less radiant heat


    One important aspect is understanding how to grow your crops with LED lighting. When comparing the energy balance of LED lighting versus HPS lighting, the conversion of electricity into light and heat is different. Using the same amount of energy, LED-modules deliver more light and less radiant heat. This does call for new growth strategies for high-wire crops.
