    Customer challenge


    Since the sale of most incandescent lamps has been banned throughout the European Union, it is up to the growers to find alternatives that are at least as good for their crops. Dings and van den Eertwegh are making things even more difficult for themselves by also looking for an energy-efficient and sustainable solution.

    The right lighting 

     

    One of the most important advantages of LED lighting compared with incandescent lamps is the spectacular reduction in energy consumption. This was confirmed by the energy savings of 88%. This means a major improvement for the business operations and meets Brookberries’ express wish to grow crops with the environment in mind.

    The LED flowering lamp with far red light can match the incandescent lamp with even better results. The plants respond well and, for instance, show improved elongation, making early and increased production possible.

    Brookberries is convinced of the advantages of cyclic lighting with the energy-efficient LED flowering lamps that they’ve installed the LEDs on an area of over 7 hectares.
