US (OR): Smart Grow Systems updates MMJ grow lights

After years of research and in-the-field testing, Smart Grow Systems announced the availability of the newest member of its commercial vertical farming system, the GOLDENi LED grow light series for propagation and flower.

“Smart Grow Systems’ mission is to drive out waste from commercial horticulture,” said Darrin Dow, founder and CEO of Smart Grow Systems. “Smart Grow believes the future of many commercial crops will be vertical farming in a sea of green application, and we are focused on building a comprehensive vertical farming system to maximize biomass production in the available space of any commercial indoor grow operation. Smart Grow has started with ultra-efficient lighting, digital controls and consulting services that help growers understand the biomass potential of their grow spaces: how much sellable, high-quality crop can be grown in a space when the grow area is stacked up to the ceiling.”

At 2 feet by 4 feet, GOLDENi may be the widest grow light on the market, but at 1 inch it’s also the thinnest, maximizing vertical rack space. GOLDENi uses nearly 2000 LED chips to produce an even spray of light with enough intensity to ensure deep canopy penetration for flowering. The GOLDENi light series uses Smart Grow’s new Golden Glow Spectrum. The GOLDENix, using the Baby Blue Spectrum tailored for cloning and propagation, uses less than half the LED chips and needs as little as one-sixth the power to create state-of-the-art propagation. GOLDENi lights also include accessory ports so that growers can add spectrum-enhancing modules at certain times in the grow cycle, such as adding red to the final weeks of the flower stage.

“By switching to vertical farming with Smart Grow’s new GOLDENi lights, Deschutes Growery has been able to increase our yields by at least 400 percent per harvest inside the same space, and have reduced our carbon footprint by more than 50 percent,” said Dylan McMahon, engineer at Deschutes Growery in Bend, Ore. “Deschutes Growery has been looking to retrofit our inefficient high intensity HPS lighting for a while but haven’t been able to find the right LEDs that maintain our standard of quality until we found GOLDENi. Smart Grow LED grow lights, in conjunction with our vertical farming system, make best use of our grower’s producer license by allowing us to maximize our canopy size without adding real estate.”
