MUCCI FARMS BOEMBERRY FACILITY TO USE SOLLUM’S DYNAMIC LED GROW LIGHT SOLUTION TO CULTIVATE A DEMANDING CROP, STRAWBERRIES
Mucci Farms is looking to hone their expertise in strawberry cultivation by conducting onsite experimental lighting strategies under Sollum's unique dynamic LED grow light fixtures, at their 72-acre Boemberry location.
A trusted source for quality strawberries grown in Kingsville Ontario, the team at Mucci Farms is interested in learning more about the role that different light spectra play in various growth stages of berry development. "No other technology can give us such control over the quality of our light like Sollum's can," says Bert Mucci, CEO of Mucci Farms. "The unparalleled precision, accuracy and flexibility of our new light fixtures will be determining factors in the success of our experiments."
Sollum's dynamic LED light fixtures provide unmatched benefits in terms of spectrum and intensity control. Clients have the freedom to apply an infinite number of light recipes derived from a growing recipe playbook or custom-designed with the help of Sollum experts. These recipes can be changed seamlessly over time without the need for new fixtures, or mechanical or software adjustments. The light in the greenhouse will also automatically adjust to ambient light to ensure consistently accurate lighting conditions.
"The experiments are under way, and we are looking forward to see the results because strawberry cultivation is regarded as complex and, as a result, demanding”, says Louis Brun, CEO of Sollum Technologies. “Thanks to our SUN as a Service® platform monitoring and the expertise of our team of agronomists, technicians and engineers, Boem Berry Farms is benefiting from 24/7 support to ensure that all trials are successful."
