Vertical Farming

Quick Biomass Development

Delayed flowering. Increased nutrient and flavour build-up.


Efficient Production of High Quantities of Plants on a Small Area

Artificial lights are a pre-requisite for plant production in no-natural light growing environments. In the absence of sun light the quality of the light (spectrum) is accentuated to the highest degree. As artificial light in no-natural light, is the sole source of light, higher light intensities are also required, than in many supplemental light situations.

Higher light intensity also leads to a higher thermal load to be cooled in these no-natural light environments. A superior light spectrum allows, not only for higher crop yields, but also for lower intensities and less energy consumed to cooling too, thus the benefit from Valoya’s lights is very high.

A Greater Flavor and Nutrient Build-Up

An independent scientific study has shown that Valoya’s AP673L spectrum results in the highest build-up of phenolic compounds i.e. flavor and nutrients.  (Artificial LED lighting enhances growth characteristics and total phenolic content of Ocimum basilicum, but variably affects transplant success (Bantis et al. 2016)). 


The AP673L spectrum has been optimized for vertical farming. It’s unique red:far-red ratio delays flowering allowing the plant to focus all its energy into fast biomass development. Additionally, it has been found to produce 48% more yield in a trial on lettuce, than the competitor LED product.

“We looked at about 6-8 light manufacturers and we found throughout all of the testing, whether it was the yield, flavor or the support and the service, every single time we chose Valoya”

Create a Quick Light Plan

More biomass, better flavor and longer shelf life with Valoya LEDs. For support with light planning, please contact Valoya sales team, we will be happy to create a light plan for you, free of charge.

Output Intensity Map

For optimal yields, your light plan should have more than 70% coverage area within target intensity range( +/- 20%).

LED Luminaires for Vertical Farming

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.
