Studio Rosegarde firm of the Netherlands has illuminated the fields by planting millions of dancing LEDs along with the plants.

  • Here, 3 color LEDs have been installed in the fields so that lack of sunlight can be completed.

Many traditional methods are adopted to get a better crop, but hardly anyone has heard of putting dancing lights in the fields at night to grow the plants. Studio Rosegarde firm of the Netherlands has used a different type in the past. Firms have illuminated the fields by planting millions of dancing LEDs along with the plants. According to agricultural experts, this special light helps in the growth of plants. The reason behind doing this in the Netherlands is that fog or fog is always covered with cold and icy weather, due to which crops do not get enough sunlight.

The average annual temperature here is 1.2 degrees Celsius. This is why Dutch artist Dan Ruzgaarde experimented with LEDs in fields to help plants grow. His experiment has been successful. At night, these fields look like sparkling millions of firefighters.
Purple, red and blue lights used in green onion fields
The latest project of Dan Ruzgaarde, launched in the city of Lelistad, Netherlands, is named ‘Gro’. The lighting system he has installed in large fields of green onions has used purple, red and blue lights. This unique installation by Roosegarde has been done to inspire Dutch farmers to learn to do outdoor farming with artificial light. By the way, the use of night time ultra violet light has been going on in glass house agriculture for quite some time. Especially in places where it is impossible to get direct sunlight.

It has just been used on a small scale. This studio is working on the theory that ultra violet light helps plants grow. According to this, if ultra violet light is left in some special wavelength, then it can reduce the cost of pesticides by 50 percent. Dane said that this lighting installation ‘Grow’ plan is still with Lelistad, but soon they will extend it to more than 40 countries.
