For many years, it is known that plants require light for growth, but not until the last hundred years with the development of science and technology that how the effects of light on plants is discovered.

The use of artificial lighting in agriculture seeks to provide a source of light that is similar to sun light in different cultivating conditions. With the innovation of technology, LEDs lights has been the ideal solution for horticultural lighting, especially the ones with customized built spectra. In terms of environmental and production efficiency, this marks the advantages of LEDs lights in comparison with traditional used lights (HPS, fluorescents).

In January 2018, Valoya in collaboration with the University of Almeria and Buresinnova has publish a study about artificial lighting in agriculture. The study introduces experiments using different spectra and types of lights to measure how they can affect plants on growing purposes in different conditions.
