Canadian LEDs prove productive in China

Future Farm Technologies announces that its LED Canada division has made significant progress in the past quarter.
  • LED Showroom build-out is complete and fully operational allowing for cost savings from a vertically integrated warehouse and showroom.
  • Demand is increasing for LED Canada’s award-winning Scorpion grow light as more licensed growers complete testing.
  • A licensed producer in the USA was able to secure a rebate from its public power supplier for its use of LED Canada Scorpion grow lights, paving the way for savings and large LED purchase orders.
  • Peking University has been using LED Canada grow lights and has shown that they produce the highest yields versus other grow lights tested.


  • LED Canada is in the final stages of providing a quote on its LEDs for the previously announced Mobile, AL farm and another farm in development in Massachusetts. Each vertical farm would require 9,000 8-foot LED lamps, which would represent a multimillion-dollar purchase order for each project.
Peking University is a member of the C9 League, analogous to the Ivy League in the United States, and often ranked among the top higher education institutions in China. Only those who score highest in nationwide examinations are admitted, with a total enrollment of about 35,000. Among its faculty, 53 are members of the prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences, and seven of the equivalent academy of engineering. Peking merged with Beijing Medical University in 2000, adding a range of new medical courses and disciplines.
