Why vertical farming become so popular in recent years? In vertical farming, plants will not need sunlight or soil. The leafy greens will be cultivated on multiple floors with use of led grow light and the indoor climate control system. It is one of the greatest achievements in agriculture because it focused on meeting the need for food for people living in urban areas or in the high-altitude place where it is cold and lacks the natural sunlight all year round. With the “grow- up” concept, it makes the growers provide fresh, clean and nutritious vegetables in the limited growing space 365 days possible. This could be a great step to solve the food problem.
The high-tech hydroponic farm, LED lighting system, climate control computer was built in a shipping container. The plants growing in the multiple layers lighted by LEDs are in high quality and fresh.
Apart from the air, water, temperature, the led light is also a key factor for growth. Lettuce including Bibb, Oakleaf, Frisee, Crystal, Gem, Batavia and mini-Romaine can be cultivated on multiple layers with careful control of artificial light, temperature, and water. There are 100 times more efficient than traditional farming.
NFT Rolling racking system can grow salad, herbs, micro-green, strawberry etc. The flexible growing system apply with the led grow light make the plants grow anywhere possible. The advance as below:
1. “Plug and play” concept allows quick and simple installation.
2.The movable function makes the planting, harvesting and cleaning more efficiency and optimizes the growing space.
3.All the growing conditions can be controlled with the Enlite integrated control system.
4.Full spectrum led grow lights giving growers an unprecedented ability to control their growing environment.
Designed for multiple layers grow and chambers installation. The Horti-tube is IP 66 waterproof and lifetime is 50000 hours. With the light intensity up to 2.0 nmol/w and the dimmable function make the light can meet different growing periods for the crops. And with the low heat dissipation, these Horti-tubes can be placed anywhere between 10cm to 50cm above the canopy, and the grower doesn't need to worry about the surface of the leaf will be damaged by the light.
Different plants grow best with varying amounts of light. Take medical cannabis for instance, during the Cloning stage, the PPFD should be 100-200 μmol/m2/s; in vegetative stage need around 400-500 μmol/m2/s, and in Flowering they need 12 hours light on and 12 hours darkness. For indoor growers, to expose the plants to light as is required is the key to get a good yield and high quality.
The Flora -780W is a high-intensity light with 1728 pcs full spectrum LED with a 2.6 μmol/J high efficiency. It saves up to 50% energy than other led grow lights. The light system with the smart controller makes it perfect to cover 4 X4 ft area for plants in all growing stages- from veg to flowering. The easy installation design is also making it the ideal light for the grower to optimize their grow space
