LED lighting and growing tomatoes

Jun 28, 2021

Tomatoes are the number-one greenhouse crop in the US. Tomatoes are also the number-one greenhouse crop in the world.  Why are tomatoes the number-one crop? It is because of the high global demand for tomatoes all year long.
Due to the high demand for fresh tomatoes all year, greenhouse growers are looking to LED lighting as a solution for growing bumper crops with low energy consumption. LED grow lights do not produce much heat; therefore, specialized cooling systems to maintain optimal temperatures are unnecessary. LED grow lights are a cost and energy-efficient solution for greenhouse tomato growing and studies indicate the quality of the fruit grown under LED horticultural fixtures is consistent with other preferred options.
