Collaboration with schools and universities

Gavita works closely together with horticultural educational institutes who we help to develop training programs, provide demo equipment and provide master classes. Gavita has an apprenticeship program and is an officially recognized training company. In the exclusive Club of 100 we work closely together with Wageningen University, funding, initiating and participating in horticultural research. We support local research programs with guidance, consultancy, funding and equipment.




Wageningen University (WUR)

Gavita International is a member of the “100 Club” – a cooperation between WUR and commercial horticultural suppliers of materials, hardware, software, financing or plant material to finance and drive research and innovation. Members have access to the extensive expertise of the Greenhouse research business unit within WUR and work closely together on fundamental research and innovation. 

Researchers of WUR are involved in validation research projects and innovation projects of Gavita. 

Wageningen University & Research is a collaboration between Wageningen University and the Wageningen Research foundation. A staff of 6,500 and 10,000 students from over 100 countries work everywhere around the world in the domain of healthy food and living environment for governments and the business community-at-large.


Welland college

Wellantcollege 

As a market leader in horticultural lighting we sponsor and cooperate with educational institutes. Wellantcollege has a unique Green Tec 3 year study aimed at technology within horticulture. For this mid-level college we initiated and contribute to integrating a new plant light and greenhouse lighting technology course.

We do this in close cooperation with universities, so the curriculum we develop can be used at multiple levels within the educational market. We further contribute with equipment, master classes, site visits and project assistance. 

The developed curriculum will also be used at other horticultural schools, underlining Gavita’s commitment to the sharing of knowledge and innovation strategy.

Typical applications for 750W lamps are vegetative rooms, combinations with plasma lighting, smaller rooms with lower intensity and rooms with a limited distance to the crop. 
Gavita was the first to introduce a 750W double ended lamp and fixture for horticulture, increasing the efficiency of single ended 750W fixtures by about 20-30%. They are now the standard in horticultural lighting for 750W systems. 
Gavita pioneered the use of double ended lamps in this industry. These professional lamps offer you the highest output and light maintenance in the market today. Backed by decades of horticultural experience, Gavita recommends these lamps for use in her professional fixtures in horticulture. 
Our DE lamps output 15-35% more PAR light than traditional single ended lamps and have a much better light maintenance, which means that you only have to change your lamps once a year. 
The double ended construction enables the arc tube to be in stable the center of your reflector, for optimal optical placement. No more sagging heavy lamps in your reflector that destroy the throw of your fixture.  The absence of a frame wire further increases the output and uniformity. 
The  narrow lamp reduces interference with reflected light from the reflector. It is nitrogen filled instead of vacuum, allowing the arc tube to be smaller while maintaining the correct arc tube temperature. You should not use our double ended lamps in direct air cooled fixtures, as they cool under the optimal temperature, reducing the output considerable. 
The smaller arc tube results in a higher light density than single ended lamps, improving the penetration of your crop.
Higher light output results in lower infra-red output, as energy in a lamp is converted to light and heat: The more light, the less heat is generated.

Always make sure that you run lamps at 100% for at least 100 hours to stabilize the lamps, before you dim or boost the lamps.
