    20% more yield
    and better crop quality

    With both husband Stig-Erik and wife Marika being tomato growers, they’re continually looking for ways to improve quality and yield.

    with LED interlighting in Finland, so the choice was obvious.”

    Customer challenge

     

    In response to growing competition and higher quality demands from his supermarket customers, Stig-Erik wanted to increase both the yield and the quality of his tomato crop. Since the GreenPower LED interlighting system is highly efficient and because Philips has real experience with LED interlighting in Finland, the choice was obvious.

    The right lighting

     

    The results in the greenhouses were excellent. The increased light level enabled a higher plant density and bigger tomatoes, resulting in more than 20% extra yield.

     

    Interlighting makes it possible to control growth perfectly throughout the year. One of its biggest advantages is that it can be hung within the canopy wherever the crop needs it most. Also, leaves can be left on the canopy longer, ensuring that they continue to photosynthesize and remain productive.

     

    Stig-Erik was so happy with the first installation, within six months he decided to equip his other two greenhouses with interlighting as well.
