Research trial aims to improve strawberry production with supplemental light


Fecha: 06-09-2022

Strawberry season is in full swing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t end up with a bad batch. Luckily, research is underway to learn more about using LED lighting to produce consistent, high-yielding strawberry plants—during strawberry season and beyond.

Fluence by OSRAM has partnered with Delphy Improvement Centre in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands, to conduct the research, focusing on how the company’s LED lighting solutions impact strawberry production in greenhouses.

Traditionally grown in outdoor fields, strawberries are temperature-sensitive crops, restricting growers in the northern hemisphere to limited seasonal production cycles. The research team aims to examine best practices for efficiently growing strawberries in a controlled environment by introducing supplemental lighting techniques that growers can replicate year-round.
