The collaborative effort between two of the world’s leading photobiology and agriculture technology companies will incorporate BioLumic’s scientific advancements into Fluence’s award-winning lighting portfolio.
Fluence has announced an exclusive partnership with BioLumic, a New Zealand based plant-growth biotechnology company that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to sustainably increase plant yields, health and quality with Light Signal Recipes™.
Under the agreement, Fluence and BioLumic will collaborate to deliver BioLumic’s UV Light Signals through Fluence’s LED lighting solutions.
BioLumic’s patented technology leverages UV photomorphogenesis to trigger biological events in seeds and young plants to dramatically optimize plant performance.
The company’s proven UV Light Signal Recipes™ can induce large gains in plant yields, desirable plant traits and vigor while also activating natural plant resistance to disease and pests.
“Our goal at Fluence is to drive cutting-edge plant science and innovations in agriculture technology,” said David Cohen, CEO of Fluence. “We’re excited to pursue that goal in collaboration with BioLumic and create the next generation of leading lighting solutions for cannabis and produce growers around the world.”
“BioLumic’s Light Signal Recipes™ allow cultivators to fully and frictionlessly harness UV lighting to improve plant growth and genetic expression without big input costs or chemicals,” said Steve Sibulkin, CEO of BioLumic. “This partnership will accelerate the development of BioLumic’s Light Signal Platform, increase our company’s access to the global horticulture market and strengthen Fluence’s horticultural lighting portfolio. It’s a tremendous win for growers looking for new ways to grow more with less.”
