Grow & Greenhouse Facilities

Lighting in farming is complicated for a lot of different reasons. Unfortunately, Farmers typically choose to use the most expensive lighting to operate. Farmers like the idea of LED lighting but don't trust it and or had a bad experience because they purchased a few cheap fixtures off the internet or from a local farm store.

Farm Lighting

Dairy and beef farms each require different types and amounts of lighting. Lighting is very important to the production of eggs and beef cattle.  The proper color and amount of light can increase a farmer's production by 20% plus.

Poultry requires approximately 50-lux or 5-footcandles of light, not much; however, when light levels fall below this, the birds become very uncomfortable. Poultry likes a CRI of 80, and anything below this makes it difficult for the birds to distinguish each other and may increase aggression.
