Latest company news about Growing summer-tasting tomatoes all year round with led grow light

In 2015, the entrepreneurs began exploring ways to grow tomatoes year-round so they could offer a local for local product in the winter months to their retail customers. Creating the business case was a challenge as electricity prices are high and the percentage of customers able to pay a somewhat higher price quite low. The co-owners discussed various options with RYGH led grow lighting and advisors from their horticulture department calculated a business case for the 2.5 ha installation. These calculations provided input for intensive discussions with the company’s retail customers to make this strategic decision. The goal was to expand the growing season across the entire year and strengthen customer loyalty by offering a unique local for local product for their region.

 

In 2015, Neurather Gartner became the first German nursery to implement led grow lights in 2.5 ha of their nursery. They worked with RYGH Lighting’s partners, BE de Lier/Codema and Agrolux, to install the system, which combines RYGH SON-T HPS toplighting with RYGH GreenPower LED interlighting. Baum: “We are very happy with the support we received during this project. A plant specialist from Philips Lighting helped us select the suitable lighting product and light recipe based on the varieties of tomatoes we grow. BE de Lier/Codema and Agrolux were very competent and answered all of the questions we had.” Based on the results achieved in the initial installation, the company installed a similar hybrid grow light system in an additional 5 ha greenhouse in October 2017. Thanks to these lighting installations, fresh, summer-tasting Mini Cherry, Mini Cocktail, Mini Date tomatoes are now found year-round on German supermarket shelves in Nordrhein-Westfalen.​
