Horticultural LED system brings vertical farming to biomass crops

Smart Grow Systems has announced the Goldeni LED horticultural lighting system that is intended for optimizing propagation and flower cycles in vertical-farming installation for crops such as cannabis, orchids, hops, and berries. In such crops, increased biomass is the typical goal of growers and Smart Grow Systems claims that Goldeni will produce more biomass, support faster cycles, and more effectively use space.

In crops such as tomatoes or cannabis where biomass is the goal and crops generally grow tall, LED or legacy lights are installed well above the plant canopy and serve as the primary radiometric energy source indoors or as a supplemental source in greenhouses. In crops such as leafy greens and herbs, the latest movement is to vertical farms where many racks of plants are stacked and in which the LED lighting is placed very near the plant canopy.

  1. In the smart greenhouse market, the non-hydroponic type captured the majority of the market share; however, the hydroponic type is the fastest-growing type during the forecast period. Some of the major players in this market are GreenTech Agro LLC (U.S.), Nexus Corporation (U.S.), Certhon (The Netherlands), Logiqs B.V. (The Netherlands), Hort Americas (U.S.), Argus Control System Ltd. (Canada), LumiGrow Inc. (U.S.), Heliospectra AB (Sweden), Terrasphere Systems, LLC (U.S.), and Rough Brothers, Inc. (U.S.).
