Jul 17, 2017

In the near future, the State Council issued the "National Agricultural Modernization Plan (2016 - 2020)" mentioned in the promotion of science and technology, humanities and other elements into agriculture, the steady development of farmland art landscape, balcony agronomic and other creative agriculture, to encourage the development of factory, Three-dimensional high-tech agriculture, and actively develop custom agriculture, exhibition agriculture and other new formats. It is understood that green plant lighting is the development of LED lighting in another piece of "blue ocean", is expected to 2018, LED plant lighting field will reach billions of industry scale.

Industry development, everything seems to be orderly, "money" unlimited. 

2016 years will be gone, this year, domestic and foreign plant lighting has a lot of representative development of the moment, today, Xiaobian to choose one of the hot, there are market opportunities, technical testing, corporate layout, leadership care ... with the wisdom of friends to review and think, with a view to poke the clouds, see the future development of the field of plant lighting

The pace of development is fast and the problem is still outstanding

October, the Hong Kong International Autumn Lighting Fair held on schedule, through the exhibition on display, you can find many domestic LED lighting companies have begun to layout plant lighting, and bring new products debut. Industry insiders believe that plant lighting is an emerging market, product prices are high, relatively small in the country, the current mainly export-oriented. At the Hong Kong show, the Leandia lighting scene shows a range of plant lighting products, from low-power lamp with light bulbs to large wattage lamps, with wide power coverage. It is said that this year's show up to purchase LED plant lights significantly higher than last year, showing the potential opportunities for plant lighting market segments have been widely recognized by overseas customers. At the same time, also noted that the current customers are part of the trial to understand the stage, the majority of pre-verification, the downstream business model is not very sure, the real operation of large-scale commercial plant plants, horticultural field, or community-based family type There are not many commercial products.

Guangmingyuan chairman and president of Hong Yanan believes that through the exhibition is to feel the plant lighting or in the initial stage of development, mainly in the lack of standards and the market awareness is not high two aspects. According to reports, Guangmingyuan this time on display of plant lighting, the biggest advantage is that with more than 10 years of experience in lighting, while there are practical experience in plant plant support, so all the light recipe is verified by the practice is high performance And there is a competitive advantage over the cost. Hongli Zhihui, deputy general manager of Wang Gao Yang, the current LED plant lighting technology is not a great difficulty, the key is the lack of knowledge of biological cultivation and LED technology, integrated talents. At the same time, the current domestic LED plant lamp market is still in its infancy, the application of the field in the field of plant growth is not only high cost, light penetration is not strong and other issues, there are product clutter, production design is not standardized, the lack of uniform quality standards And other issues. He then pointed out that these are the future where we need to address the upgrade. 

Domestic manufacturers layout

Hongli Zhihui actively layout LED plant lighting 

With the increasingly fierce competition in the general lighting market, many LED manufacturers have to force plant lighting and other market segments to open up a new way. In early December, Hongli Zhigui Group Co., Ltd. Deputy General Manager Wang Gao Yang said publicly that Hongli Zhihui in addition to the future of China's bullish LED market, in other segments of the application market such as plant lighting, infrared, And other areas are also accelerating product layout, there are already plant lighting with high power LED, UVA, UVC and infrared LED products such as the introduction of the market. In fact, in recent years can also be seen, Hongli Zhigui is actively positioning the field of plant lighting market segments.

It is reported that its independent research and development of the C3535 series of products, with full band, high power, high reliability, design flexibility and other characteristics, is the preferred light source for plant lighting. Hongli Zhihui Engineering Technology Center, the relevant person in charge has also said that the series of plant lamp beads can be based on different plants, different use of the environment, different growth stages, customized for the growth of the optical ratio of plants, plant photosynthesis supplement sufficient specific Spectrum, to ensure the healthy growth of plants. Its production of LED plant lights can be widely used in aqueous culture, garden, planting, breeding, seedlings, farms, flowers and other fields.

Dutch Rose Nursery Porta Nova is also particularly looking forward to the LED test, can improve the quality of roses. The Delphy Improvement Center in Bleiswijk is also conducting a study of 100% using LED lighting to grow roses. 

Technical test examples

NASA LED plant incubator and then upgrade, next year sent to the station 

Plant lighting, plant plants are undoubtedly in the exploration of space space has a very large application prospects, but obviously, this is not an easy thing. At the beginning of this month, an engineering laboratory for the Space Station pilot project "Advanced Plant Habitat (APH)" was shipped to the NASA Kennedy Space Center's Space Station Test Equipment Laboratory for testing. It is understood that this is the largest plant incubator made by NASA. The NASA engineers, scientists and technicians involved in this project will be trained in the laboratory using engineering parts to learn how to operate and assemble the equipment before the APH flight is delivered in the (2017) year. They will also test the scientific integration of the plant incubator system. NASA Kennedy Center engineers are responsible for APH unit design and flight parts manufacturing. The relevant support system is headed by ORBITEC, located in Madison, Wisconsin. The experimental device has a closed system with a controllable internal environment that can grow large plants. The device uses a monochrome light system consisting of red, green and blue LEDs similar to the current International Space Station Vegetable Growing System (Veggie), and can also be illuminated with white LEDs and infrared light sources. There are about 180 sensors inside the device, lighting intensity can reach Veggie system four times.

As early as 2015, astronauts on the International Space Station planted edible lettuce and other vegetables using the "Vegetable Growing System" (Veggie). In the same year, NASA announced the official launch of the program called "Veggie" in the International Space Station Planting Flower Program. In January 2016, NASA announced photographs of the baconite flowers in the space station. Scientists at the Kennedy Space Center have developed the scientific load embedded in APH for space station plant growth experiments and ground control experiments. The load integration engineer will work with Jacobs' associates to integrate the scientific experiments or seeds into the APH unit. Jacobs' R & D scientists also provided experimental space and support for the APH project. In addition, small-scale plant culture experiments - plant Habitat1 (PH01) in the mouse mustard seeds and cabbage, mustard and other small plants. Experts say potatoes will be the first choice for crops grown in space or other planets, and sweet potatoes, wheat and soy are good choices because they provide a lot of carbohydrates and soy is a good source of protein. Take potatoes as an example, it is a tuber plant, which means it can be stored underground. When potatoes get equal amounts of sunshine, they can produce twice the food production of other crops. At present, a "post-salad crop" is being studied, and they are raw food categories that can be eaten raw. Astronauts will be planted potatoes, wheat and soybeans and other food with this kind of salad crops, you can provide a complete diet.

Shenzhou flying science test, LED plant lighting into a bright spot

October 19 morning, Shenzhou eleven manned spacecraft and Temple II docking success. At present, in the Beijing Aerospace Flight Control Center under the precise control of the Temple II and Shenzhou 11 combination to adjust the attitude from the original inverted flight state to fly, which is the standard combination of flight status. In the "Temple II" laboratory astronauts opened up the vegetable garden, planted the seeds of lettuce, carried out from the plant cultivation test. It is reported that the reason why lettuce with space, because lettuce growth cycle is just 30 days, and astronauts in the Temple resident time coincide, and lettuce environment adaptability is very strong. However, it is reported that the plant will not be consumed this time, but will be used as a test sample collection of relevant data.

In fact, this is not the first time the plant into space, nor is it the first time in China with plants heaven. The history of plants is almost as experienced as the history of human aerospace. The most recent one is that the astronauts in the International Space Station in 2015 planted lettuce in space and are really used for food. In recent years, China's research on the cultivation of space vegetables has become increasingly deep, at present, the world only China, the United States and Russia and several other countries successfully carried out a manned spacecraft carrying "aviation breeding" research. At present, China's space vegetable varieties are space pumpkin, space pepper, eggplant and so on. It is reported that the space planted lettuce and the previous space vegetables are very different. Before the space vegetables are carrying a crop of seeds into outer space, in the outer space environment, so that the seeds of genetic mutation, and then return to Earth after breeding, resulting in new varieties of space vegetables. This time, but directly in the spacecraft planted lettuce. It is expected that future agriculture or will usher in a new industry - space agriculture.
