To highlight the benefits of dynamic lighting for Québec horticultural businesses, Investissement Québec, as an agent of the Québec government, has granted Sollum Technologies $350,000 in funding for a technological showcase involving a novel strawberry research trial in partnership with Savoura.
Strawberry production in greenhouses under lighting is relatively new. The goal of the project is to use Sollum Technologies’ LED grow light solution to refine lighting strategies to increase the productivity and quality of greenhouse strawberries.
Investissement Québec administers MEIE’s Innovation program helps encourage the collaboration between companies and research bodies to develop cutting edge technological and economic initiatives. Sollum has previously been supported by the program to conduct critical research for a wide variety of fruits and herbs in order to expedite the commercial launch of their unprecedented lighting solution.
This is not the first time that Sollum and Savoura have worked together to contribute to a growing body of research supporting the advantages of dynamic LED lighting in the greenhouse industry. Earlier this year, Sustainable Development Technology Canada granted Sollum $2.5M in phase two funding to conduct greenhouse tomato research in collaboration with Savoura Group, PRISM Farms and the Harrow Research and Development Centre.
