Sandylands Nurseries, England
“This project is remarkable because the greenhouse is fully equipped with a hybrid grow-light; LED in combination with SON-T. This modern application offers a range of benefits for the owner, the Holt family. The combination of SON-T exposure (105 µmol) and LED inter-lighting (110 µmol) assures year-round production, consistent quality and more revenue. With the LED grow-light installation the crop can remain constantly active during winter as well as on dark summer days.
By means of the efficient use of LED grow-light, combined with SON-T, the electrical energy costs are reduced with more than 10%. An additional advantage is reduction of excessive heat from the lamps, which means less ventilation and thus assures an energy saving. Besides that, the inter-lighting heats up the crop which leads to a less heating demand from the grow pipe heating. These benefits emphasize the sustainable nature of this unique project.”
