    Stimulating

    efficient tomato growth

    Alfred Pedersen & Søn ApS, Denmark

       

    To reduce energy consumption and achieve greater continuity in growth and production, Pedersen invested in interlighting.

    The right lighting

     

    Pedersen has 12 hectares of tomatoes in total, growing five different product types. But average daylight levels in Denmark’s winter months are not sufficient to grow tasty tomatoes like Piccolos. Therefore, additional lighting is needed during this period.

     

    A total of three gutters, each 50 meters in length, in a single line, were fitted with a combination of the existing HPS lighting and the Philips GreenPower LED interlighting.

     

    In addition to the increased yield during winter months, Pedersen is also set to increase production in the summer, using the LED lights for only a couple of hours in the morning. This seems to be an effective way of activating the crop while being economical with energy.
