With the properly tuned wavelengths in VeggieFresh LED lights, growers can see a savings of 50% or more in electricity costs if currently using HID lighting like metal halide or high pressure sodium.

After 2 years of research, development, and testing, VeggieFresh LED announces arrival of their new line of commercial LED grow lights through VeggieFreshLED.com. Known for bringing innovative products to the commercial greenhouse marketplace, VeggieFresh is positioned to permanently alter how produce is grown on a large scale by showing grow operation owners how to increase revenue by 35% or more.
VeggieFresh LED products can help medium to large scale growers in one of two ways. The most common installation incorporates lighting units in outdoor greenhouses as supplemental lighting. As supplemental lighting, LED grow lights allow growers to extend the season by being able to start earlier and run later in the year. Early and late season growing can be tricky because the sun offers less intensity and growers experience fewer daylight hours which reduces crop yield. VeggieFresh LED systems can be connected to timers and light sensors to turn on automatically at a particular time of day or in reduced light conditions. This means that growers can give their crops all of the light they need every day without worrying about inclement weather that blocks out the sun. Growers in places like Seattle, Washington who average less than 50% sunny days can enjoy the same number of sunny days as in parts of California at 75% or more.
VeggieFresh LED grow lights are also used as the primary lighting source when no natural light is possible. When growing inside warehouses, vertical farms, or even in converted shipping containers, proper lighting is critical to plant life. VeggieFresh products are specially tuned for growing indoors – anything from lettuce and herbs to fruits and vegetables – covering all cycles of growth from seed to fruiting. High intensity diodes are used, incorporating precise wavelengths that correspond to peaks in the absorption spectra of photosynthetic pigments necessary for plant growth.
With the properly tuned wavelengths in VeggieFresh LED lights, growers can see a savings of 50% or more in electricity costs if currently using HID lighting like metal halide or high pressure sodium. Much of the energy consumed by HID lights is not useable by plants and is just lost as heat which needs venting, adding to overhead. LED plant grow lights run cool and require little to no venting which reduces operating costs.
