Grow light

Lighting for year round production

Grow light has simply become part of the greenhouse horticulture sector in the Netherlands. After being used in flowers and plants, the greenhouse vegetable cultivation sector also started to use grow light around the turn of the century. The most significant benefit of using grow light in tomato growing is that this ensures that tomatoes can be produced all year round. This ensures that the consumer can always count on a constant supply and quality.

Another significant benefit of producing all year round is that the work can be distributed more over the year so that fewer seasonal workers need to be used. Lans uses high-pressure sodium vapour lights for grow light. We may perhaps be able to use LED lighting in the future. By using LED lighting, more use can be made of different spectrums of light. Lans is actively involved in the research into this.
