    Grow strawberries with 
    Philips GreenPower LED toplighting

    Brookberries

    Venlo, The Netherlands

     

    In an area of 20 hectares and spread across four greenhouses, Brookberries produces 2,5 million kilos of top-quality strawberries of various varieties each year. Two of these greenhouses are half-lit; one with traditional HPS lighting and the other with Philips GreenPower LED toplighting.

    Three cultivation cycles
    each year,

    instead of two. That makes a big difference in revenue. We are now able to deliver quality strawberries to consumers year-round.”

    The Challenge


    Brookberries wants to grow quality strawberries year-round. This will require the very best lighting to achieve a predictable production process and higher yields. The company strives for a production process which meets both sustainable requirements as the demand for year-round production. This is why the company already chose for Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamps in the past.

    The right lighting 

     

    At the end of 2018, 6700 Philips GreenPower LED toplighting modules have been installed In one of their greenhouses, thereby contributing to a constant production process and a predictable, high yield. The LED lighting makes it possible to have three cultivation cycles per year, instead of two cycles in unlit greenhouses. Even in months with little daylight there is a continuous growth process. The new toplighting gives better control of harvest times and for the growers, commercial partners and the consumers this is a very desirable development which is in line with the societal and economic needs of the year-round availability of quality strawberries. 

    geen sprake meer. Planten laten een betere strekking zien, en de belichting draagt bij aan de aanmaak van voedingsstoffen, en daarmee aan vruchtgroei en smaak. Daarnaast kan met de nieuwe belichting beter worden gestuurd op oogstmomenten, een voordeel dat ook de ketenpartners aanspreekt. In October 2017, Peters completed construction of two ultra modern new greenhouses to replace those destroyed and an additional greenhouse to expand operations. The new greenhouses are two meters higher, reaching seven meters in total. They are equipped with a sophisticated water purification system as well as a vertical ventilation system, allowing better climate control and CO2 distribution and uptake.

     

    Peters chose to double the LED lighting area to about 11 hectares with a new hybrid lighting installation that combines Philips GreenPower LED interlighting High Output with HPS toplighting.

    Philips GreenPower LED toplighting delivers very high light output, while radiating much less heat than HPS toplighting. 


    The flowering lamp is the alternative for extending day length for plants that are sensitive to the photoperiod.
