The cultivation of red fruits in a controlled environment under glass or plastic greenhouse and so-called “vertical” cultivation have many advantages which make it a quality production with high added value. The consumer appreciates the differentiating markers on the shelves by color, variety, smell and taste. The quality of natural or artificially supplemented light activates these levers to provide a healthy and quality product. It can also, through physiological mechanisms, promote recovery, homogenize production, increase yield and even guard against invasive diseases or fungi such as mildew.

  • Producers
  • Seeds
  • Multipliers

Strawberry, Raspberry, Blueberry, …

  • Increase production (kg / m², number of fruits)
  • Improve organoleptic properties (taste, physico-chemical properties, presentation, etc.)
  • Optimize production time
  • Reduce energy consumption related to lighting
  • Use light signals to stimulate and promote ascent
  • Define the most efficient lighting protocols for each species

Results on strawberries and raspberries
  • Better acclimatization in production
  • Precocity during the flowering phase (gain of 2 weeks)
  • Precocity on harvest (10 days)
  • Length of the upper sides (+ 20%)
  • Better homogeneity of production
  • Increased yield (+ 25%)

The use of lighting is as important a factor as irrigation, fertilization and heating. By combining VGD's expertise in the field of light and my experience as a producer, we are working on the development and optimization of my cultural management. The exchanges are dynamic and interesting, which allows us to evolve from culture to culture.
