Growing cut-flowers year round is possible by implementing all types of protected growing structures. TOP offers a wide range of models to suit any climate, land condition and budget. Season extension, control of climate conditions and length of light hours allow the grower to take advantage of higher demand markets and increase of profits.
Cultivation lights either attempt to provide a light spectrum similar to that of the sun, or to provide a spectrum that is more tailored to the needs of the plants being cultivated. Outdoor conditions are mimicked with varying color, temperatures and spectral outputs from the grow light, as well as varying the intensity of the lamps. Depending on the type of plant being cultivated, the stage of cultivation (e.g., the germination/vegetative phase or the flowering/fruiting phase), and the photoperiod required by the plants, specific ranges of spectrum, luminous efficacy and color temperature are desirable for use with specific plants and time periods.
