LED Grow Lights for Agricultural Lighting
Indoor herbs and plants grow optimally under indoor grow lights, and modern LEDs are ideal for agricultural lighting. By using LED lamps for your agricultural lighting needs, you can achieve efficiencies that are between five and 10 times higher than using traditional metal halide lamps. The reason for this is LEDs emit the red and blue wavelengths required by plants to produce chlorophyll and to grow strong and healthy flowers and fruits.
Using LEDs for agricultural lighting is ideal becausethey do not emit a lot of heat, making it easier for you to maintain the perfect ambient temperature for your indoor plants. You will also find your plants require less water because of the fact that the LEDs are much cooler than conventional grow lights and less nutrients. Fortunately LightRabbit boasts a wide selection of the most modern LEDs to make your job that much easier. Let’s take a look at your options.
Tube LED Grow Lights
LED grow tubes are easy to use with an input voltage of 240V but only consumes a fraction of the electricity used by conventional grow lights. They has an average life span of 50,000 hours and a wide beam angle of 120 degrees, ensuring maximum growth using minimal electricity.
UFO LED Grow Lights
These RoHS certified LED grow lights have an input voltage of 240V and uses minimal electricity. They are not dimmable and can last up to 30 years, making it a worthwhile long-term investment for the self-sustainable grower.
High Powered LED Grow Lights
High Powered LED Grow Lights are available in a variety of wattage power and feature 120° wide beam angles. It is recommended that 300W grow lights are positioned at least 16 to 30 inches from the top of the canopy. 600W grow lights should be kept at least 24 to 26 inches from the top as they emits a more intense light. If you place your lights too close to the plants, they could stunt the plant’s growth. If they are too far away it could cause your plants to stretch.
