LumiGrow, Inc. (http://www.lumigrow.com), the leading provider of smart horticultural lighting, today announced that it has signed a North American distribution agreement with Hydrofarm, Inc., one of the world’s largest wholesalers and manufacturers of indoor gardening products.
Hydrofarm’s six state-of-the-art distribution centers will make LumiGrow LED lighting for greenhouses, controlled environment agriculture farms and urban gardens readily available to more than 1,500 garden center and hydroponic equipment retailers throughout the United States and Canada.
