About us

Nice to meet you,
we are Crocus Labs

What we do

We are a Berlin based VC backed startup. We designed a smart LED-lighting system fully customised for the indoor farming market. It massively reduces energy consumption without compromising the crop quality & yield. With 15+ years in semiconductor & LED innovation and agriculture, we bring full spectrum and efficient light to vertical farms and greenhouses.

Our Product

  • 20% less energy consumption.
  • Flexibility & crop diversity.
  • 30% increased energy effect LED technology.
  • Fully remote farm management.

Where we are today

  • Developed and tested 2 product generations: MVP & GEN 0.
  • Two commercial projects: strawberry grower & basil.
  • Multiple internal crop tests including pepper, stevia, etc.
  • European Innovation Commission grant in June 2022.
  • Closing Seed round in September 2022.

We bring not only a full spectrum of light!
but a full spectrum service offer

Initial Assessment

A template for the customer to fill in- general info about the facilities and priorities.

Scope of Work

Based on the initial assessment and a follow up discussion with the tech team.

Facility Assessment

Crocus’ engineers to assess client’s facility.

Pilot Part 1

Up to 3 liminaires to install at customer’s facilities to conduct the AB testing with another luminair Minimum duration: 3 months or 2 growth cycles.

Pilot Part 2

Up to 10 luminaires to conduct a broder study aligning on the business priorities.


An agreed number of luminaires for a bigger project.

Already today our Gen_0 product shows the efficiency

The Product

4 channel fully tunable sunlike lighting system using custom built power conversion unit 15% energy efficiency

The Expected Performance

A fully tunable lighting systems capable of providing full spectrum at a reasonable cost. Efficiency matching MVP and better connectivity/UX.

The results of our case studies have exceeded the expectations

Increased crop quality

Fruit sweetness increased
from 4 to 7

…Optimal marketable yield through coloration, taste and plant resistance
Biggest strawberry grower in North Germany

Increased crop yeild

The biomass was 15 % more
…Increased crop biomass through homogeneity and influence of an optimized spectral composition on plant morphology
One of the biggest research institutions in Germany

Growth time reduction

Seeding to the first fruit time decrease from 90 to 58 days
…Optimized development of vegetative and generative growth, high yield results and fruit quality
Internal Study

Improved energy efficiency

15% less energy needed
…In comparison with today's market leading solutions
