The team at Great Lakes Greenhouses takes pride in their list of firsts: first to use CO2 enrichment in the greenhouse, first to grow cucumbers year-round, and first to propagate cucumbers from seed on site to prevent disease. Welcoming innovation with open arms, the company is now embracing Sollum Technology's fully dynamic LED grow light solution to improve the efficiency and quality of their diverse production.
With over a thousand fixtures covering close to two acres, production under Sollum's dynamic LED production is in full swing in Leamington, Ontario, where Great Lakes Greenhouses is based.
Before when the crop is planted and the after when the plant is mature enough to be sold.
"We chose Sollum fixtures for our vegetable propagation operation, which represents a demanding and critical chunk of our business," says Mark Reimer, Research & Business Development Manager of Great Lakes Greenhouses. "We grow a variety of non-GMO and organic produce, including cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, and eggplants, so we needed a supplemental lighting solution that could meet the precise needs of a diverse group of crops."
"Sollum Technologies is the only horticultural lighting company to offer a truly dynamic lighting solution that can adjust seamlessly to meet the needs of different crops as they grow and their light requirements change," says Kassim Tremblay, vice president, Business Development at Sollum Technologies.
"Clients like Great Lakes Greenhouses really allow us to demonstrate the full capabilities of our technology while they benefit from the innovation we offer in terms of programmable and re-programmable fixtures, infinite light recipe options, ambient light compensation, and multi-zone light management."
The Sollum team is looking forward to supporting Great Lakes Greenhouses as they begin their journey with dynamic LEDs; its team of experts is always on hand to offer light recipe advice or remote technical aid to guarantee optimal performance.
