Over the years, with the rapid development of technology and modern agriculture, traditional farming has undergone a comprehensive technological transformation. LED agricultural grow lights have quickly garnered widespread recognition and use in the agricultural sector.

As the agricultural technology continues to evolve, the LED plant lighting industry has become one of the fastest-growing sectors. Data from Zhiyan Consulting indicates that the global plant grow light industry had a market size of approximately $6.78 billion in 2022, marking an increase of 22.83% year-on-year.

1. Technological Advantages of LED Plant Grow Lights

LED grow lights are embraced for their unique technological benefits. Compared to traditional fluorescent and high-pressure sodium lamps, LEDs are not only more stable, energy-saving, and efficient, but they also have a longer lifespan and produce less heat, allowing for close-proximity illumination. They are suitable for everything from home gardening to large-scale farming. Most notably, LED grow lights can be tailored to specific light spectra, eliminating unnecessary wavelengths. This provides plants with precise and high-quality light sources at various growth stages, enhancing photosynthesis efficiency and promoting healthy growth. As a result, farming overcomes limitations imposed by climate, geography, and other environmental factors, thereby boosting cultivation efficiency and effectiveness.

2. GMY LumiAgro | Apollo Series

LumiAgro, a subsidiary lighting brand for agriculture under GMY, is dedicated to the research and manufacturing of light for plant growth. We are not only equipped with a professional R&D team specializing in agriculture and lighting but also boast a plant factory with 6000m²growth area, offering abundant data and strong technological support for the research and development of agricultural lighting products. Tailored lighting solutions are designed based on the species and growth stages of various plants.

Apollo Series - Tissue Culture Lights

To meet the demands of tissue culture seedlings in modern agricultural production, the LumiAgro tissue culture light innovatively employs LEDs as the light source. Utilizing their efficiency, energy-saving attributes, adjustable light quality and intensity, and narrowband characteristics, they effectively reduce the costs of tissue culture, opening up more possibilities for in-depth research in plant photo-biology.

Apollo Series - Flowering Lights

LumiAgro flowering lights have broad applicability. They can induce flowering in long-day crops like dragon fruit, honeysuckle, and peony, and prolong the blooming period of short-day crops such as chrysanthemums, crabapples, and primroses, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of indoor planting.

3. Light and Plant Growth

Light, being one of the vital factors influencing plant growth and development, its spectrum, intensity, and photo-period affect the growth of plants and are collectively termed as the "light formula". LumiAgro, by continually optimizing the light formula, provides plants with precise high-quality light.

Spectrum

From a spectral standpoint, the photo-synthetically active radiation beneficial for plants falls within the visible light range (400-700nm), commonly referred to as the spectrum of seven colors. Spectral analysis reveals that plants primarily absorb red and blue light for photosynthesis. Red light promotes regular flowering and fruiting, while blue light stimulates stem and leaf growth.

Spectrum


Light Intensity

Within a certain range of light intensity, the rate of photosynthesis in plants increases with light intensity. However, it's worth noting that when the light exceeds the capacity of the photosynthetic system, photosynthesis in plants diminishes, a phenomenon known as "photo-inhibition".


Photo-period

The blooming of most annual plants depends on daily sunlight duration. Besides flowering, the formation of tubers and bulbs, leaf shedding, and bud dormancy are also influenced by the light cycle.

Based on these insights into plant light "recognition" and "preferences", theoretical support is provided for the research and innovation of the LumiAro Apollo series products.
