Horticulture

Cree has the widest range of white and color LEDs optimized for horticulture lighting. Cree LEDs deliver the industry’s highest Photosynthetic Photon Flux (PPF), efficiency, and reliability to enable the replacement of MH and HPS at radically lower power. Cree white LEDs deliver the full spectrum of light to mimic natural sunlight while Cree royal blue, green, photo red and far red LEDs deliver high PPF in the wavelengths best suited for the different stages of plant growth. The combination of consistent package, footprint and drive levels allow easy tuning of spectral content at the luminaire level to adapt the light exactly to the needs of various crops. Built on Cree’s high reliability ceramic package technology, Cree LEDs deliver excellent R90/L90 lifetimes, even in extreme conditions.
