By deploying approximately 2,000 VYPR 3 Series LEDs in their 6000m² greenhouse, Solbergs Gartneri was able to increase light levels by 70% using the same energy consumption. This significant increase in PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) led to an increase in production at the end of the winter season. Going forward, Solberg aims for a 50% increase in total yearly production.
Light quality is a crucial component of cultivation success, as these figures demonstrate. Under Fluence’s BROAD R6 spectrum, cucumber crop morphology improved drastically when compared to the red/orange hue seen under legacy HPS lamps. Greenhouse growers that tend to their plants daily also report improved working conditions under a white light that allows them to properly and comfortably inspect plants and harvest fruits.
Solbergs Gartneri has proven what can be achieved with LED technology in the dark Scandinavian winter conditions. The Fluence horticulture service team continues to work closely with the Solbergs Gartneri team to ensure cultivation success through each season.
