efficient tomato growth
with two fruits more per truss, faster ripening and higher fruit weight”
- Alfred Pedersen, owner Alfred Pedersen & Søn ApS
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.
The interlighting module is a bi-directional lighting module for interlighting in between tall plants e.g. tomatoes.
