Use of LEDs has potential to save energy and increase yield: customised spectrum leads to more efficient light utilisation, In Greenhouses, vol. 6, no. 1, p. 24-25, 2017-01-05, Jan van Staalduinen, http://edepot.wur.nl/422224
Energy is a major expense for rose growers. At Arend Roses, in the Dutch Maasland, research is being carried out into the effect of a customised light spectrum, through means of LEDs, on yield and the possibilities of it saving energy. The findings are encouraging but the energy efficiency of LEDs needs to be improved further to make the purchase of a second lighting installation profitable.
