Dutch cucumbers: fresh harvest all year round

Almost one year ago, Dutch cucumber growers Reijm en Zn. komkommerkwekerij BV reorganized their horticultural company and expanded it considerably with acquisition and subsequent relocation to Zevenhuizen. The new horticultural company has a total area of 11.5 hectares, of which 6 hectares are equipped with assimilation lighting.

To meet the increased market demand for Dutch cucumbers grown all year round, the company wanted to expand its illuminated cultivation area and was looking for a suitable partner and an optimal lighting solution for its high-quality cucumber production.

DLI and Ushio joined their efforts to offer a perfectly matching lighting solution to Reijm en Zn and installed the most efficient 1000W HPS available on the market the Horturion® HPS 1000 W supra plus lamp from Ushio.

“The DLI and Ushio product matches all our demands and wishes: superior output and highest efficiency in µmol/W compared with other lamps available on the market” Jan states.

“For the year-round cultivation of aromatic cucumbers, the parameters must be precisely defined, because the required light intensities must be matched to the seasonal heat requirements of the plants. Being their lighting partner we contribute to the taste and quality that can only be found in carefully cultivated crops”, Dennis Janmaat from DLI adds.

The light sources come from Ushio. The HORTURION® supra plus 1000 W lamp with a light output of 2180 µmol/s is the most efficient HPS 1000 W lamps currently available on the market. Developed in Germany and produced in the ultra-modern production facility at Ushio Poland, they are a perfect match with the DLI luminaire.

"We are proud to be part of this passionate company philosophy. Without light, no plant grows; with good light, it thrives; under optimally coordinated light, it gets stimulated to unfold its potential given by nature," Dragan Šimšić, Director Horticulture at Ushio, states.
