UFO Supplies udate June LED Special


How can you optimise the predictability of your crop's growth? Which lighting can really help you improve crop quality? How do you find the right balance between yield increase and energy saving? These and many other questions were answered during the Signify Horticulture Roadshow. UFO Supplies and Signify organized individual sessions with growers to discuss the latest developments of Philips LED innovations. The developments in LED lighting for the horticultural sector are going fast. Time for an update. Now that meetings are subject to restrictions and large exhibitions worldwide do not take place, this requires a creative approach. The Covid-19-proof bus with Philips grow light made an extensive stop at UFO Supplies. We invited growers from nearby to the event. We shared our knowledge and looked together with growers at the possibilities for greater efficiency and crop-specific light recipes.

Hopefully we can start traveling again so we can see each other around in the field but if you have any questions about LED innovations already don't hesitate to contact us. email: Jans@ufosupplies.nl

A while ago had a conversation with Jan Dijkman Philips/Signify, which can be viewed on our YouTube channel in an English (short) and Dutch (long)version.

Special attention to our most popular LED lamp.

The Philips GreenPower LED Flowering Lamp 2.1 is used for day light extension with low light levels for growers of indoor and outdoor crops such as:
- Propagators with mother stock plants such as Chrysanthemum, Pointsettia, Begonia and other bedding plants
- Cut flower growers of Gypsophila, Carnation, Hypericum, Solidago and other (summer) flowers
- Growers of bedding plants
- Growers of soft fruit such as strawberry

This LED is the most cost effective solution for daylight extension currently available. Next to substantial lower investment costs than other LED solutions it offers energy saving up to 90% compared to incandescent lamps and big energy savings versus halogen and compact fluorescent lamps.

- 10W of 9.3W depending on colour mix
- Long lifetime, 25.000 hours with 90% flux maintenance
- Standard E27, 120V - 230V
- IP44 rated, UL damp and dry locations
- Available in 2 colours mixes: DR/W(10W) and DR/W/FR(9,3W) offering a choice that fits the plant best

The lamp is available in two different spectral versions: one offers a combination of deep red and white (DR/W) and the other offers a combination of deep red, white and far red (DR/W/FR). Short-day and long-day plants, as their names indicate, flower most rapidly under short or long days, respectively. During naturally short days, nighttime lighting can delay flowering of short-day plants to stimulate vegetative growth, or promote flowering of long-day plants. The DR/W version inhibits flowering and prevents budding of mother stock of chrysanthemums, dahlias, poinsettias and others. The DR/W/FR version is ideal for photoperiodic lighting of summer flowers, like gypsophila, aster, hypericum, solidago, as well as potted plants, annuals and perennials. It can extend the day or interrupt the night cycle to promote elongation of the stems of strawberries and stimulate flowering.

The Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamp’s proven technology cuts your energy usage by up to 90% versus incandescent lamps, offers big energy savings versus halogen and compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) – and boosts crop results.

The GreenPower LED flowering lamp is the effective, energy-efficient way to extend daylight in greenhouses that cultivate:
  •    Cut flowers
  •    Bedding plants
  •    Perennials
  •    Strawberries
