Vertical farming for growing indoor strawberries with SANSI grow lightsBack
Vertical farming refers to produce food and medicine in vertically stacked layers. It makes the best use of artificial light solutions, replacing the need for sunshine. It also controls the lighting, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide concentration and other factors in vertical farming. Growers from Indian have operated strawberries indoor by using SANSI full spectrum grow lights in terms of vertical farming. “Through vertical growing practices, we are able to grow and harvest hundreds of strawberries per week on a substantially smaller container. Today’s growers can produce more by using LED grow lights.”
Let us discuss more benefits of vertical farming for growing strawberries indoor:
Strawberries are high light plants and require 10-16 hours of sunlight exposure. There are photosynthesis functions in spring. The Daily Light Integral (DLI) of strawberries are 20-30 in mol·m-2·d-1. Those strawberries planted in vertically stacked layers will grow vigorously, the leaves become dark green and germination is well developed. The high yields can be obtained.
If the light is insufficient in the autumn, it will also affect the formation of flower buds, the plant growth is weak, the starch stored in the rhizome and other nutrients are less, and the cold resistance is reduced, often causing winter death.
Strawberry likes a warm climate. Although it has a certain cold tolerance, it is not resistant to severe cold and heat. The optimum temperature for strawberry growth is 18℃to 25℃.
Temperatures that are too high or too low have an adverse effect on strawberry growth. When the temperature is below -20 ℃, the whole plant tends to be resistant to low temperatures of -10 to -15 ℃ . If it encounters high temperature, the growth and development of the plant is not good. As a result, the quality is deteriorated and the maturity period is delayed.
In order to get the maximum amount of hours of grow light required, SANSI full spectrum grow lights can provide lighting solutions to your vertical farming of growing strawberries indoor.
SANSI full spectrum LED grow lights are one of the most powerful grow bulbs available. We encourage you to compare our µmol/s and µmol/J with any other growing bulbs. Our Ceramic Heat Sink design allows us to increase our photon density (PPF/W) within the bulb. Best of all, the bulb emits a white light ideal for aesthetically pleasing environments. SANSI LED grow lights can ensure sufficient hours of light and make your strawberries grow healthy in the whole year.
Otherwise, SANSI adopts patented ceramic technology and unique hollow-out structure to improve heat dissipation efficiency, prolonging bulb’s lifetime to 25000 hrs. It is energy saving and flicker free and ensures an excellent heat dissipation and long-lasting performance.High color rendering index with 80+, restoring the original color of the product and letting the growers X judge the quality of the strawberry better.
Instead of having multiple LED chips with different colors (white, blue, red, far red), each SANSI LED chip produces a mix of wavelengths ranging from 380nm to 780nm and gives off a white glow. This light provides full spectrum white light which means it is closer to real sunlight for strawberries. Strawberries will regard this type of lighting like sun light. SANSI LED grow bulbs simulate natural sunlight (including UV&IR), giving all spectrum your strawberries’ need, beneficial for whole phrase of growth from seed to harvest. Recommended coverage area up to 3.6 square feet mounted 12”-39” above plants, lighting time 10-12 hrs, depends on different plants. Average PPFD is 111.56 μmol/s/m² based on 19.7” above plants. Uniformed lighting and spectrum, providing an evenly distributed spectrum ideal for strawberries.
SANSI provides two different kinds of grow light which can perfectly meet the needs of your plants. It will help promote an increased growth rate, flowering, and the germination process.
