The Emerging Trend of LED Lighting in the Farming Industry

The Emerging Trend of LED Lighting in the Farming Industry

Gone are the days when farmers had to juggle a flashlight in one arm at night to inspect why the horses in the barn are uneasy, or what disturbed the chickens late in the night. While the convenience of switching the barn lights on with a flick of a switch isn’t something new – high-pressure industrial lamps have been around for a while now – a major change is the replacement of those by more efficient LED lighting applications.

Yes these light have been around for decades, but it is only now that we see them penetrating deep into the agricultural industry. Even with the high-pressure lamps, there was never enough illumination to eliminate the need to carry a flashlight into the barn and/or silo at night. All this is changing now.

Farmers and agriculturists are quickly adapting to this trend – and that seems to be the more feasible thing to do as these LED lighting applications bring a host of different benefits.

First, LED lighting fixtures come in a wide range of different shapes and sizes. This ultimately means that agriculturists can pick lighting applications as big or as small as they want. Most of these applications use clusters of tiny LED bulbs to illuminate an area, so it’s entirely up to the buyer how concentrated or expansive they want their light coverage to be.

Another factor – and perhaps the most important one – is the energy savings LED lights provide. These lights use up to 90% less energy than their traditional counterparts. Imagine the amount of money one can save by simply replacing a couple of high-pressure lamps that stay on all night in the barns.

Also, these lights tend to last much longer than ordinary lights, which translates to savings on maintenance, energy costs, and replacement costs in the long run.
