June 2018: UV420 Plasma Grow-Light Revealed at the Greentech Exhibition, Amsterdam:
Stuart Stoddart, Ceravision's Commercial Development and Global Sales representative, revealed the prototype UV420 plasma grow light. Press Release13th June 2018: A ground-breaking new lamp that is ideal for maximising plant growth is being launched by UK lighting pioneer Ceravision Ltd at the Greentech show in Amsterdam in June 12-14 2018. Ceravision's Development and Global Sales representative, Stuart Stoddart said "Not only does the lamp and patented spectrum provide an exceptional alternative for growers seeking to increase photosynthetic rates, yield and disease resistance, its exceptionally high output means one Ceravision UV420 plasma grow-light can replace at least two conventional lamps - cutting replacement costs by $880 (£600). No other lamp can offer the UV420's blue-light, UV-A light and UV-B light to really add value to a crop."
Mr Stoddart added: "The UV420 plasma grow light gives plant growers much increased levels of blue-light, UV-A and UV-B, which can lead to increased yields of up to 30%, and better quality crops with higher nutrition levels." "Ceravision's UV420 plasma grow-light truly is the lamp of the future." Contact: Ceravision Ltd; Tel: into UK: +44-(0)-1908-379-444; email: email@example.com
