Using Supplemental Grow Lights

The most important aspect of any grow is how much light reaches the plant. Whether you are planting tomatoes in your garden, or cannabis in your greenhouse it is vital to choose the right amount of sunshine for your crop. Radiance Grow Tech’s US partner Efinity has a recent success with a greenhouse grower.

The client has a beautiful greenhouse in Santa Barbara California, a place with plenty of sunshine. The grower however realized that adding supplmental lighting could increase crop yields. The team installed Proluxx 1000W grow fixtures in the facility and anxiously awaited the new harvest. In the first harvest, the dry yield had actually “doubled”. This is the power of supplemental lighting.

Maximum Yield has a good primer on this topic here.

Trials with Proluxx are currently underway at two of Canada’s leading greenhouse operators in Leamington, ON. Further exciting trials will be announced for cannabis in the coming weeks.

Start of a lighting journey

In late 2017 I was looking for some new greenhouse products at a horticulture trade show. At the show I was attracted to gleaming lights from an unassuming booth. The company was Efinity, and they explained they had a new disruptive lighting technology. Coming from a background in organic fertilizers and pesticides, I was intrigued. I researched several other lighting companies and found they all looked and acted the same, based on old HPS lighting technology.

After a few months of researching I concluded the greenhouse industry in Canada was missing out on Efinity products. After a visit to their facility in Walnut California in February 2018 I was ready to launch Radiance Grow Tech. The team at Efinity, is led by a former Philips lighting expert and quickly our sales team was up to speed on LED, Metal halide (CMH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) technology.
