With the increasing legalization of cannabis, research on cannabis cultivation in North America has become more and more extensive, including cannabis species, growth stages, cultivation methods and suitable growing environments. The development of related equipment, including cannabis cultivation lighting and production equipment, also continues. As an emerging industry, led indoor planting has developed rapidly, although it started late. In terms of feasibility and quality, it is absolutely excellent, simple to operate and high efficiency. It can be the greatest light of growth. However, LED grow lights are also very expensive due to their high quality, which means they are not cheap.
To learn how to quickly grow cannabis seedlings with LED grow lights, let’s first understand what LED grow lights are. LED grow light is a kind of light source that uses LED (light emitting diode) as illuminant and artificial light source to meet the lighting conditions of plant photosynthesis. It belongs to the third generation of plant lighting! In a sunny environment, the lamp acts as sunlight, allowing plants to grow or develop normally. Lights help cannabis promote strong root and fruit ripening, including regulating flowering and enhancing quality!
Features of LED grow lights:
Rich wavelength types;
It fully conforms to the spectral range of plant photosynthesis and photomorphology;
Spectral waves can be combined to obtain pure monochromatic light and composite spectra;
The light balance can be concentrated on a specific wavelength to illuminate the crops;
The system generates less heat and occupies less space;
In recent years, with the continuous progress and popularization of LED technology, the legalization of overseas industrial hemp cultivation, and the further development of modern facility agriculture such as global plant factories and vertical farms, the plant lighting market has ushered in unprecedented opportunities for development and has become a number of lighting manufacturers. A “must have” to take the road of differentiated competition.
In 2020, the outbreak of the global epidemic has triggered a crisis of food security and supply shortages, further accelerating the maturity of the plant lighting market, and demand has shown explosive growth from the second half of the year. And this year, the horticultural lighting market is like a “dark horse”, and it has become one of the fastest growing lighting segments throughout the year.
According to the 2021 Global LED Lighting Market Report, thanks to the promotion of national policies and the mass introduction of LED plant lighting equipment in the North American medical and recreational cannabis cultivation market, the output value of the global plant lighting LED market has increased to US$301 million in 2020, an annual increase of 57%.
In the long run, the construction of modern agriculture and the intelligent development of agriculture will inject continuous vitality into the plant lighting market, which also means that the LED plant lighting market has a broad space for growth.
From the perspective of facility agriculture, modern facility agriculture such as plant factories and vertical farms is booming around the world, expanding plant factories or vertical farms.
