While it is well known that natural sunlight is one of the key factors in growth cycle of a plant, most growers cultivating a variety of crops under sunlight have experienced difficulties in regulating their growth cycles due to adverse seasonal conditions. Replacing sunlight with LED lighting that closely matches natural sunlight enables growers to control the growth cycles and development of crops year-round in greenhouses and indoor farms.

Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are the world’s first LEDs to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight. The SunLike Series LEDs adopted for horticulture LED lighting by Rofianda B.V. achieved a full spectrum of light wavelengths from 380nm to 740nm, similar to the spectral curve of natural sunlight, with a color temperature of 5600K optimized to daylight spectra and color properties of CRI97 and CQS97. In co-operation with Rofianda B.V., Seoul Semiconductor has delivered an optimal horticulture lighting solution that fulfills the requirements of the light source for effective cultivation of all varieties of crops, flowers, and cannabis.

Rofianda B.V. introduces their innovative horticulture lighting with SunLike at the annual HortiContact Fair, held in Gorinchem, Netherlands February 19 – 21.

“We are proud to launch the innovative horticulture LED lighting in co-operation with Seoul Semiconductor. Its SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are the first and only true sunlight LEDs that enable growers to ensure better yields and a consistently high quality of crops. We believe that market demand for horticultural LED lighting with SunLike LEDs will expand,” said Ronald Gronsveld, director of Rofianda.

“The horticulture lighting market is growing fast, and our SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs will offer the considerable benefits for customers to achieve optimal horticulture lighting solutions,” said Ki Bum Nam, sales and marketing vice president of Seoul Semiconductor. “We are pleased to expand this horticulture LED portfolio and will further diversify the customer base worldwide,” added Nam.

SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs were co-developed through the combination of Seoul Semiconductor’s optical semiconductor technology and Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R technology, which defines its original concept as “the light closest to the sun for human well-being.” TRI-R technology enables the spectrum of natural sunlight to be reproduced by a white LED light source. TRI-R is a registered trademark of Toshiba Material Co., Ltd.
