Hoogenboom Alstroemeria starts using Philips GreenPower LED
Alstroemeria growers benefit from hybrid lighting
Ries Neuteboom, Key Account Manager for Philips Horticulture LED Systems said “More and more alstroemeria growers are choosing hybrid lighting as growing alstroemerias require both light and heat at the same time. Hybrid lighting systems with a combination of LED and Philips SON‑T lighting answers the need to control heat and light separately allowing the grower to grow better crops, year-round with greater control over growing conditions while reducing energy costs.”
Grower Dick Hoogenboom opted for 50-μmol LED lamps providing him better climate management as well as flexibility to manage lights and heat independently. "Our 100-umol Philips SON-T installation was already quite powerful, but I wanted to be able to provide even more light so that I can improve quality even more. The initial results appear to be positive. The crop is growing well and the production also looks excellent," said Dick Hoogenboom.
Hoogenboom Alstroemeria will use light recipes specially designed by Philips Lighting to support its growing strategy. Philips Lighting has invented specific light recipes for specific crops to help growers further enhance their crop results. Using a recipe, a grower can steer specific plant characteristics, from compactness, color intensity and branch development to flowering to improve results. The company’s light recipe knowledge has been developed over many years of cooperation with growers, university, and research sites to enhance growth.
