In recent years, more hydroponic growers have begun using LED grow light to accelerate crop growth and improve the quality of yields during winter. To help its customers remain competitive, BASF has to adapt its lettuce varieties to meet the requirements of hydroponic systems that use LEDs.
RYGH LED Horti Partner Light4Food helped BASF gain experience using LEDs to grow lettuce in its greenhouse. The first results were promising, so BASF decided to equip the entire greenhouse with Philips GreenPower LED toplighting, which produces a light intensity of 110 µmol/m2/s. A light intensity that corresponds with the light level of BASF's customers.
Does: “We are always looking for more efficient ways to improve our breeding process so we can bring improved varieties to the market as fast as possible. With the LED lighting solution we are able to screen more varieties per season, which accelerates the process of finding the right varieties.
