Three Video Case Studies:
Showing the Success and Many Benefits of LED Grow Light Systems
Iwasaki Bros., Inc.
Iwasaki Bros., Inc. in Hillsboro, Oregon, one of the largest wholesale ornamental growers in northwest United States, turned to Philips LED lighting to address their need for a high amount of supplemental light. By replacing HPS lights, which consumed a great deal of energy and therefore, were costly to run, with Philips LED toplighting, Iwasaki not only incurred savings with their energy costs but they also realized significant benefits to crop growth including stronger and faster rooting, less crop loss, and faster turn times.
Van Belle Nursery
Van Belle Nursery in Abbotsford, British Columbia, installed Philips GreenPower LED toplighting in their potted hydrangea greenhouse in 2017. Pablo Costa, the operations manager for Van Belle’s retail-ready division, talks about successes he experienced with the Philips brand LED grow lights, successes which included 2-3 weeks faster crop time, a 10% reduction in PGRs and improved color intensity.
Great Lakes Growers
Great Lakes Growers in Burton, Ohio is now growing 100% of their lettuce and herbs under Philips LED toplighting. John Bonner, the owner of Great Lakes Growers began trialing LEDs in 2015 and after seeing the success in a small area, expanded the Philips LED toplighting installation in 2016 and again in 2017.
