INCREASING CROP YIELDS

FOR STRAWBERRIES GROWTH in GREENHOUSES

Strawberry cultivation in Europe and beyond is undergoing a major transformation. The industry is consolidating rapidly and for some time now the annual amount of strawberries grown in the greenhouse is more than in the open ground. This trend will continue in the coming years, with year-round cultivation increasing in importance.

More and more professional growers are switching to cultivation strategies, whereby through-carriers and/or continued cultivation there is a better availability in those months where the supply of open ground is too low. To make these crops more productive and extend them, lighting is inevitable. This increases productivity and quality in those periods when prices are most attractive. In the future, therefore, every strawberry grower will illuminate at least a large part of his acreage. FLORALUX growth lighting is the best and best-selling system for this.

Why LUMINAID

for horticultural applications?

  • Unique and bespoke light recipes: high PPFD for optimal growth stimulation
  • Energy savings: less than 250 kW per hectare
  • Very low radiated heat signature: only 1,2 °C increase on foilage
  • Climate controle: Ultra low convection heat transmittance

THE BEST FOR THE STRAWBERRY

The strawberry is a photosensitive crop. To set up efficient production during the dark period of the year, a customized growth lighting system is required. In addition, the light colour has an influence on the growth, production and quality of the strawberry. Red light is positive for production; blue light promotes sugar and vitamin C levels. And finally, white light, which ensures fruit recognition.

The use of energy-efficient growth lighting is crucial to compensate for the shortage of cold in crops. FLORALUX growth lighting provides a negligible addition of heat in the greenhouse, something that conventional top lighting systems cannot, or solve by expensive and failure-prone water cooling. LUMINAID’s FLORALUX lamps have an optimal spectral structure that leads to the highest energy and photosynthesis efficiency. In addition, the connection power and thus the power consumption is significantly lower than other lighting technologies. All FLORALUX systems for strawberry cultivation are easy to hang and dimmable as standard. This allows the grower to adjust his cultivation at his own discretion and steer it to changing market conditions.
