LED’s Power The Farm Of The Future Today

In the not to distant future, finding fresh picked vegetables, in January, in New York or Chicago or any other city in the world, will be as easy as visiting the “farm” down the street. That is the vision of Philips Lighting and horticulture company Deliscious. Deliscious is working with Philips to develop stackable climate chambers to grow lettuce under LED lights. The LED’s light spectrum has been optimized to provide the lettuce plants the exact color and intensity of light they need to grow there best. In these chambers the climate can be controlled to produce high quality lettuce all year long in a much smaller space and without having to transport the plants great distances.
