C-LED and Biolchim partner to increase output capacity
Latest-generation greenhouses are designed to aid natural growth 365 days a year by using LED lights.
C-LED has designed and developed a broad range of “growing” lamps. Built by an R&D team with years of experience in the sector, they are then tested together with several Italian and international universities, as well as industry professionals who assess their performance in the field. C-LED lamps can be used in a variety of settings. These include greenhouses for growing fruit plants (such as Solanaceae and Cucurbitaceae, small fruits, edible and aromatic leaf vegetables, micro-greens, ornamental plants) and various types of indoor farming facilities (i.e. those without natural light).
C-LED’s partner in developing comprehensive lighting and nutrition solutions for plants in a variety of contexts (greenhouse and indoor farming) is the Biolchim group (based in Medicina, near Bologna). Some time ago now, C-LED and Biolchim began a series of studies and tests in their experimental laboratories and greenhouses to develop the range of crop-specific bio-stimulants.
Working alongside C-LED, Biolchim is studying a new range of products, mainly for the latest generation of soilless growing facilities, designed to boost output capacity via the use of LED lights, while continuing to ensure qualitative and quantitative yields.
The main goal of the partnership between Biolchim and C-LED is to provide soilless farmers with solutions that are ever-more specific and effective, allowing maximization of crop quality and yields. This cooperation is part of the wider ‘WIN project’ (Worldwide Innovation Network), launched by Biolchim in 2012: this is an international network of partnerships, designed to create innovation for the agricultural sector and structured according to co-creation principles.
