LEDs have varying efficiency ratings, depending on the product, and that dramatically affects how much light they’re producing. It’s the same with HPS. When we talk about HPS technologies in general, we gloss over important design elements like (1) the wattage of the fixture, (2) whether the lamp is single- or double-ended, and (3) whether the ballast is magnetic or electronic, etc.
Plants need the right temperature to grow and develop properly. Many research trials over the years have confirmed the relationship between temperature and plant growth. In applications with HPS lighting, the radiant heat from the lamps heats up the crop hastening development. LEDs, as we mentioned earlier, do not emit heat that is transferable to crop temperature and therefore extra heating is needed in the colder months. And conversely, in spring and fall months, where light levels need to be increased but you don’t want to increase the indoor temperature, LEDs can be turned on instead to increase the DLI and/or photoperiod while keeping temperatures low.
ECO Farm 650W LED light is a high-performance top-lighting solution for commercial horticulture cultivation. Designed for growers to push the envelope with high-PPFD cultivation practices.
1. ECO Farm PL series is a full cycle top light for the the commercial horticulture cultivation, we use 3500k+660nm full spectrum.
2. 15% blue light is enough for the plants veg stage, and 660nm make plants achieve maximum efficiency in photosynthesis, it is perfect use for the plant full cycle growing.
3. We recommend PL series deployed in environments with CO2 supplementation between 800-1400 ppm in reproductive growth stage due to high PPFD level. PL series can be used in the vertical farm, farm, home grow, and indoor grow, grow tent. It is your best choice for your grow light
Horticultural LEDs have steadily increased in efficiency over the years, while simultaneously dropping in price. That’s left many growers waiting and waiting for the right time to switch. But experts say the time is now. Or, rather, years ago.
In 2017, a group of prominent researchers — who include Bruce Bugbee, Ph.D., and Erik Runkle, Ph.D. — reviewed the efficiencies and costs of the lighting products on the market and came to a simple conclusion: it’s time to switch (1). Even as far back as 2017, changing from HPS lamps to LEDs reduced costs by as much as 50 percent and provided a payback time of just two to three years. Since then, LEDs have continued to increase in efficiency while decreasing in price.
