How will you grow plants in the future?
New technologies such as sensor-based crop diagnostics and cloud-driven environmental optimization are driving the art and science of growing plants to evolve in applications ranging from large vertical farms, greenhouses and research labs to small residential gardening systems.
We work with researchers and growers at the forefront of the controlled-environment agricultural revolution to provide products and systems that optimize crop development.
Light is flourishing
Smart horticultural solutions
OSRAM, as a leader in lighting technology, is at the forefront of advancements in horticultural lighting with everything from LED grow lights to complete solutions. OSRAM works closely with industry and research professionals to provide products and systems that optimize crop development, allowing reliable supply to industries such as retail food and flower markets, food processing facilities, and pharmaceuticals.Read more: Solutions, products, case studies
Components to improve nature
To ensure food supply in the future, LED components for horticulture lighting offer a spectrum of infinite possibilities. Photosynthesis and growths in height or width are influenced by different wavelengths, so systematic breed is the solution for future food supply. We are here to help improve nature.Opto Semiconductor Components for Horticulture Lighting
Vertical groth - From farm to fork
“We are witnessing the digitalization and automation of agriculture,” says Timo Bongartz, responsible for Smart Farming at OSRAM. “By growing lettuce and vegetables in a controlled environment indoors, it is possible to produce them all year round and irrespective of geographical location.” Alongside water, nutrients, and temperature, light is a decisive factor in a closed system. By controlling the light, it is possible to increase yields, reduce growing times, and influence the taste, appearance, and nutritional content of plants. “We can influence the vitamin content of tomatoes through changes in the light spectrum, or control how mild or strong basil tastes,” Bongartz adds.Read the whole story: "Vertical growth"
