Since transitioning to Fluence LED solutions, Eve Farms has increased cannabinoid and terpene production across multiple strains, resulting in enhanced plant quality and differentiated products quantified by cannabinoid and terpene results as well as awards from High Times.
Sustainably double yield – By deploying a vertical farming cultivation system, Eve Farms increased its yield per room from 100-125 pounds per harvest under HPS to 200-250 pounds per harvest under purpose-built horticulture LEDs, while only increasing power consumption by five percent.
Achieve faster cycle time – Bench turns are faster as crops mature in eight weeks, instead of nine, which will result in 35 additional days of cultivation per year.
Provide increased uniformity – When compared to HPS, the LED lights are delivering more energy to the lower portion of the plant canopy which is resulting in higher yields for Eve Farms, with notable improvements to flower size and weight throughout the canopy.
Compared to HPS-grown cannabis, cannabinoid and terpene production increased 11 percent on average under SPYDRx PLUS solutions. Eve Farms has also seen new cannabinoids emerge, which were completely absent under HPS lighting.
