Application of LED Plant Grow Lights in Organic Cultivation

Organic farming is a kind of agricultural production system that does not use chemically synthesized fertilizers, pesticides, and growth regulators, nor does it use genetic engineering and ion radiation technology. Instead, it follows the laws of nature and adopts agricultural, physical and biological methods to fertilize the soil, prevent and control plant diseases and insect pests in order to obtain safe biological and products.

In fact, fertilizers are not completely prohibited organic planting, but organic fertilizers can be used: farmhouse manure, mineral fertilizers, biological bacteria fertilizers, etc. processed by high-temperature fermentation and harmless treatment. Due to the limitation of this kind of fertilization, the growth cycle of plants is bound to be affected, and the current large demand in the market appears to be in short supply. Therefore, shortening the production cycle is one of the methods.

1. What are LED plant grow lights?

LED plant grow lights help shorten the growth cycle of plants, because the LED plant grow light source of this kind of light is mainly composed of red and blue light sources, using the most sensitive light band of plants, red light wavelengths use 620-630nm and 640-660nm, blue wavelengths use 450-460nm and 460-470nm.

2. Advantages of plant grow lights

These light sources are to make plants conduct the best photosynthesis, and the plants get the best growth state. Experiments and practical applications have shown that in addition to supplementing the light during the lack of light with LED plant grow lights, they also promote the differentiation of side branches and buds during the growth process of plants, accelerate the growth of roots, stems and leaves, accelerate the synthesis of plant carbohydrates and vitamins, and shorten the growth cycle.

With the rapid increase in global organic food demand, vigorously developing organic farming is an opportunity for more and more producers.
