Finding the right light recipe for cucumber cultivation

During the past winter season, Grodan together with nine other partners was involved in a cucumber trial at Botany. We investigated what effect different light recipes have on the cultivation of cucumbers in the greenhouse. The goal: growing cucumbers indoors throughout the whole year in the most sustainable, efficient way. On the international day of light, we zoom in on the trial findings and experiences of Erik Stappers, Plant Specialist at Signify and Jos Beerens, cultivation advisor (Business Support Manager) at Grodan.
