Sollum Technologies has launched a new research program and is poised to partner with research centers and universities across the United States.
This program, named S.E.A.R.C.H™ 1, is designed to enable researchers and institutions to bring about breakthroughs in the knowledge and practice of horticultural lighting while using Sollum's LED grow light solution. Sollum aims to improve the way plants are grown indoors by using its fully adaptable lighting solution to optimize growth, increase product quality and shelf life, contribute to pest management, promote resource efficiency, and be an important factor in greenhouse operations, control costs, especially energy costs.
"We are excited to introduce this program as a testament to Sollum's ongoing support to scientific progress and sustainable agriculture, "said Michael Hanan, Senior Sales Director of the US market at Sollum. "By making our state-of-the-art LED lighting solution available to researchers, we aim to enable them to work at the frontier of horticulture lighting science and accelerate the discovery of new insights into topics such as yield optimization, morphology management, pest and disease control and maximizing crop and nutritional quality in the most energy-efficient way."
The program's objective aligns with Sollum's commitment to innovation and sustainability. By granting researchers access to a unique lighting solution, Sollum envisions a future where advancements in horticulture lighting contribute to increased crop yields and the production of more efficient and sustainable agricultural practices.
As the research program takes root, Sollum anticipates research outcomes that will shape the trajectory of horticulture lighting. By nurturing these collaborative relationships, Sollum is positioned to continue driving meaningful change within the horticultural industry, benefiting greenhouse growers thanks to the expertise of top-tier researchers.
