The Philips LED lights give Getliņi EKO the means to extend the traditional Latvian May-August growth cycle to a complete off-season, November-August cycle. So Latvians can enjoy IMEA cucumbers all year round.
Although the cucumber project is still young, Getliņi EKO has already seen results that are in line with Signify’s yield estimates. From September 2017 to early January 2018, Getliņi EKO harvested 146 fruits per square meter in its 3,000 square meter cucumber greenhouse.
The Latvian company also expects to see energy savings from using full-LED lighting since it allows them to independently control light and heat in the greenhouse.
Getlini EKO's succesful year-round production demonstrates that Philips GreenPower LED lighting enables sustainable growth of IMEA cucumbers.
