Our years of crop science experience are applied at scale for crop production success.
Valoya has engineered premium LED horticulture fixtures for Crop Science since 2009 with 8 out of 10 of the world’s most notable companies relying on our hardware. We are proud to bring our years of experience into applied crop science, launching our full line of Crop Production Solutions.
While continuing our research-driven approach, we forge ahead in optimizing Controlled Environment Agriculture systems from growth chambers to commercial greenhouses. From algae to evergreens to cannabis, we have a practical and precise instrument for the cultivation of any member of the plant kingdom.
The consistent focus on photobiology research and plant data accumulation has resulted in collaborations with more than 100 worldwide reputable universities and prestigious research institutes such as Max Planck Institute, John Innes Centre and Rothamsted Research. Besides the high quality of the spectra, researchers also favor our luminaires due to the high CRI value (color rendering index). This means the light is eye-friendly, while reflecting plant colors faithfully (more on CRI in our blog post ‘Why Are LED Grow Lights Purple’).
Furthermore, Valoya is the only LED grow light company that has developed its own Spectrum Quality Standard by which spectral variations across product generations and production batches are clearly defined and limited. This gives a guarantee that when buying a newer Valoya lamp the spectrum variation will be within bounds ensuring the same plant responses.
Optimal light spectrum provides increased yields as well as energy savings. Valoya’s spectra enable superior growth at lower light intensities than traditional light or un-optimized generic LEDs.
Valoya’s L-series and C-series products are ideal for multitier environments, thanks to their modularity in light delivery (ie. as they are of low wattage per meter, an optimal light canopy can be realized).
Improving Breeding Processes
Valoya’s lights use high efficiency LEDs with optimal passive cooling, with minimal heat radiation towards the plants.
This, and the high modularity of the L-series products and the uniform light spectrum (ie. full spectrum LEDs are used, not combinations of red-blue) enables them to be used up to proximities of 15 cm from plants.
Valoya’s products are designed to have a long use life, typically rated at 90% of initial output at 35000 hours, which in most cases leads to a productive life of 7- 8 years and beyond.
The long use life is a result of excellent thermal properties of the LED fixture and the high quality power units used by Valoya.
