Protected crop growers finding LED delivers early crop benefits

29 July 2021 | Int. Greenhouse Guide |

Leading agricultural researcher NIAB is conducting long term speed wheat breeding trials and has found that “… already, we’re four weeks ahead of where we need to be because of the intensity and spectrum (of the INDO ELEMENT) that’s been delivered”

Similarly, Agapanthus specialist, Fairweather’s, has found they can now “stick 5 weeks earlier than we previously could the year before, so it’s given us more capacity to grow in this glasshouse”

As growers and researchers across the world continue to validate the benefits of LED, including reduced energy bills, higher yields, better-quality crops and greater predictability, the INDO product is delivering.  The unit’s broad spectrum performance ticks all the boxes in addition to an unbeatable 250,000-hour maintenance- free lifetime, backed by the company’s 10-year warranty.

The ELEMENT’s unique benefits have been picked up by a number of high-profile agricultural research companies in the UK.

Direct Drive® technology is a breakthrough LED lighting innovation that eliminates the need for a driver in the fitting.  Costly driver failures are eliminated while installation of the lightweight fixtures into existing greenhouse structures and connections is simplified with no need for complicated re-wiring.

Available for HPS replacements from 250W up to 1000W, Light efficiency up to 2.383μmol/J and a PPF output of up to 1535μmol/s, the INDO ELEMENT offers a range of options, perfect for all types of protected ornamental, vegetable, herb and salad crops.
