    Grow like never before

     

    In the winter, natural light is simply insufficient to grow tomatoes in your greenhouse. Which means tomatoes sold at local markets are most often transported a great distance, inferior in taste, and cost more to consumers.


    Therein lies a big opportunity for tomato growers in northern most climates—grow tomatoes during what is traditionally downtime for a growing operation. All you need is light. The right light—Philips LED interlighting—and you can grow and harvest fresh and flavourful tomatoes year-round.

    Wouldn’t you like to generate revenue year round? You can by capitalizing on the optimal market condition of low supply coupled with high demand. You can tap into this opportunity through the use of Philips LED interlighting. LED interlighting enables you to shift your growing season, which then positions you to grow, harvest, and generate revenue during winter months.


    Philips GreenPower interlighting is a bi-directional LED lighting that provides direct and focused light within the crop canopy of high-wire tomatoes. With the installation of Philips GreenPower LED interlighting, growers can now supply local markets during winter months with locally-grown tomatoes.
