Recently, GE's subsidiary, Current, and Hort Americas, a US horticultural material manufacturer, have partnered to introduce LED lighting systems for greenhouses under Lufa Farms in Montreal, Canada.
Lufa Farms produces 75 kinds of vegetables all year round and offers 10,000 members to buy and consume. As demand expands, Lufa Farms hopes to introduce new planting methods to increase crop yields. Seedlings are the most vulnerable period of crop growth. How to build an environment that is consistent with seedling growth is the key to yield improvement. To improve crop yields while space and lighting are limited, Lufa Farms partnered with Current and Hort Americas to create a three-layer lighting system with 430 GE Arize Lynk LED bulbs for reduced installation. Costs can also make the environment sustainable.
It is reported that this lighting system can be adjusted according to the different needs and growth conditions of various vegetable seedlings of Lufa Farms so that the seedling production speed can be increased by 15% and the planting efficiency can be improved.
