Fluence Bioengineering has produced a new video that highlights an experienced Swedish grower discussing the crop production benefits of switching from legacy HPS lighting technology to its Fluence LED VYPRx PLUS fixtures. Fluence, while headquartered in the U.S., assists greenhouse growers worldwide in dealing with production and profitability goals.
According to the company, while energy cost savings of Fluence fixtures are significant (about 50% less as compared to HPS), the more significant impact to the financial performance of growers is in crop quality improvements, reduced crop times (21% for this grower), increased bench turns, reduced input costs, reduced shrink, and becoming a more reliable supplier to customers. These benefits apply to both ornamental (plugs/liners/finished/annuals/perennials) and edible greenhouse producers and indoor vertical farmers.
In the U.S., Fluence has worked with Shenandoah Growers on a new lighting system, as well. Fluence Bioengineering provides greenhouse supplemental (DLI enhancement and photoperiod manipulation) LED lighting solutions, as well as sole-source lighting for indoor crop production systems.
