New strawberry trials test smart and traditional LED lighting

The Center for Horticultural Innovation, a division of South Essex Fabricating (SEF), will conduct strawberry trials in its experimental greenhouse testing Sollum’s smart LED solution against traditional LED lighting.

Based in Leamington, Ontario, the Center for Horticultural Innovation is an institution committed to the study and development of horticultural practices, technologies and innovations. The facility serves as a hub for research, industry collaboration and knowledge dissemination. Its world-class team of highly experienced and educated individuals strives to conduct research that will bridge the gaps within the industry.The Center for Horticultural Innovation Sollum Tech

“Dynamic lighting appeals to us because of its flexibility and capability to grow an infinite variety of productions,” said Matt Korpan, executive director of Research and Development at the Center for Horticultural Innovation. “Sollum Technologies is offering a solution that is not only flexible but addresses many common lighting issues, thanks to dynamic features like spectral compensation and auto-dimming, so we are excited to test it in our R&D greenhouse and see how well it optimizes strawberry yield.”

“We take great pride in being chosen for research and development projects by companies like the SEF’s Center for Horticultural Innovation, who meet the highest standards,” said Sam Soltaninejad, chief horticultural specialist for Sollum Technologies. “Our solution is designed to work seamlessly with surrounding greenhouse technologies, and we are confident that once the Center for Horticultural Innovation has tested our fixtures and SUN as a Service platform on a particularly difficult crop like strawberries, they will be eager to integrate our products.”
