“The goal of APS Salads was to use 100% LED lighting, LED toplighting and LED interlighting, in order to:
- Produce a constant high level of quality tomatoes
- Improve crop consistency
- Improve climate control in the greenhouse
“With the LEDs we can better control the crop balance because we have total control over the heating and lighting. It’s much easier to manage the temperature within the LED crop. We also have more flexibility in when we plant, because we can now apply high light levels even when the outside temperatures are high”, says Pearson.
“All my customers are fighting for my tomatoes – that’s how good the crop is,” concludes Pearson.
