LEDs Astonishing for Winter Tomatoes, Says Top Supplier

Flavourfresh, which produces nearly three million kilograms of tomatoes a year for the likes of Asda and Marks & Spencer, introduced LED lights two years ago at its greenhouses in Southport, to keep production going during the winter months. Production manager Andy Roe says the results have been ‘astonishing’. Roe says the quality of tomato that can be produced in the UK in winter under artificial lights is ‘identical to the quality that can be produced in summer. There’s a cost to achieving it, but the UK customers are prepared to pay for it’. LEDs are increasingly replacing high-pressure sodium. http://luxreview.com/article/2018/04/leds-astonishing-for-winter-tomatoes-says-top-supplier
