Growing cucumbers efficiently under LED

At Botany Group in Meterik, growers and researchers are joining forces to achieve ever better results with growing under LED lighting. How did the crops survive the winter? 

Experts from Botany, Signify, and BASF share the first insights from their trial. In a video, they tell more about their trials with various light spectra and lighting strategies.

"Our research into growing under LED lighting is still ongoing, but we would like to share some initial insights", they say. How did the crops survive the dark period? "To answer that question, we looked into production results, light efficiency and root condition. Spoiler: around new year’s, there was a slight imbalance in the crops", says sales specialist Rens Muusers. He talks about whether that balance has been restored. Grodan, expert in substrate cultivation, shares insights they have gained so far, for example on irrigation strategy.
