Jolly Farmer is a progressive young plant propagator using the most up-to-date greenhouse equipment and technology. Naturally, they would be one of the first growers in North America to embrace LED technology on a large scale – James Darrow, General Manager, began researching and studying LEDs in 2012.
Jolly Farmer replaces HPS with Philips LEDs
After replacing HPS with Philips LED toplighting, Darrow noted specific improvements including more compact plant growth, less plant stretch, and reduced energy consumption.
These improvements have been compounded with the larger installation. In fact, in a comparison of bay-to-bay energy consumption, Jolly Farmer’s electrician calculated the LEDs consumed 52% less electricity compared to HPS.
