In recent years, in response to extreme climatic changes in various global areas, there is an increasing trend toward greenhouse and mesh house cultivation. Simultaneously, there is a sustained effort to develop technologies for efficient agriculture and increased yields – with the goal of increasing farmers’ profits.

Lighting is an essential element in every greenhouse, particularly in countries with fewer hours of sunlight (unlike in Israel), and we have witnessed great technological advances in this area.
As LED lighting developed along with its technology, LED lamps were developed capable of reaching 220 lumens per watt, as compared to 50-60 lumens/watt for HPS lamps. The new LEDs actually caused a 50% decrease in electrical consumption per lamp. Light fixtures of 1,200 watts are now replaced by 600 watt LED fixtures. These fixtures provide coverage for an area equal in size to that covered by HPS technology, in terms of both the spectral variety and control.

The advantages of using LEDs include:
- Cost savings – the system is activated only if there isn’t enough light, and actually tracks the preset light level.

Another important application of LED fixtures in greenhouses is reinforcing the UV range. These fixtures provide UVA and UVB range support for the plant, as well as general UVC disinfection. UV ranges strengthen the roots, and protect against bacteria by preventing plants from radiation. UVC provides general protection for the greenhouse from bacteria and viruses that cause various plant diseases.
When shopping for indoor or outdoor cultivation lighting systems, make sure to choose a SUPPLIER that uses brand-name equipment like LEDs from Osram, Lumiled, Samsung, etc., and brand-name drivers such as Meanwell, Sosan, Osram, Inventronics, etc. Equipment must meet international standards like CB Test as well as a manufacturer’s warrantee of durability under L80B10 conditions, namely that decrease in light over 50,000 working hours will not exceed 20%, and the number of bad LED units will not exceed 10%.
Hannis Tech, Ltd. is a manufacturer of LED lighting systems for agriculture, Cannabis, and seaweed. The company is located in Sderot, and employs 20 engineers, production and development workers.
