Spartan researchers are working to show how LEDs can help growers of greenhouse specialty cut flowers in Michigan save energy and improve crops.
Currently, the industry relies on so-called high-pressure sodium lamps or HPS lamps to supplement lighting. But LEDs have advantages that Lopez and others are demonstrating in the MSU research greenhouse.
Compared with high-pressure sodium lamps, LEDs consume less energy, which means that over time, the cost of light-emitting diodes is also lower. This can translate into considerable savings, especially when factories need hours of lighting day in and day out.
Compared with the strange warm yellow of high-pressure sodium lamps, these lamps also have a variety of colors. These colors can promote different growth characteristics of plants.
