The AgriShift® HL-UVA is a 3W LED designed to focus on the ecological importance UV perception plays in the signaling and communication of avian species, improving their overall welfare. Unlike humans, poultry can detect ultraviolet (UVA) spectrum wavelengths and even show a preference for artificial lighting environments with supplemental UVA.
Science and Technology
Using UVA and AgriShift® technology, the AgriShift® HL-UVA fixture targets specific visual and non-visual ospins in poultry, which enables refined clarity and recognition of each other and their feed. The improved ability to pick up on social cues around them helps to enhance production, lower mortality and have an overall greater immune response.

The study demonstrates the attracting effect of UVA light at 15% inclusion rate under LED illumination on chicks in terms of time spent and feed use. A large-scale and long-term study to further verify the positive effects of UVA inclusion seems warranted. Read more on the UVA and UVC Case Studies page.
