Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Germany
BLV HORTURION LED TL Top Lighting System
|Company:||The University of Giessen can look back on a long tradition in the field of plant cultivation. The first Chair of Plant Production & Plant Breeding was established in 1926.|
|Challenge:||In a current research project, the water uptake and nutrient utilization of different rapeseed and wheat genotypes under field and greenhouse conditions will be investigated. It is important that the results from the greenhouse are transferable to the situation in the field.|
|Installation:||For this project, the new HORTURION LED TL toplighting luminaires were chosen to control the growth of greenhouse crops in such a way that it corresponds to the field conditions. The controlled conditions in the greenhouse allow to gain insights into nutrient utilization and water uptake that cannot be generated under field conditions. |
The toplighting luminaires used in the Giessen research project are part of a product range with ten different spectra optimised for the needs of different plants such as vegetables, fruit or flowers. The portfolio offers solutions for all phases of growth, from germination to production.
