Growing specialty tomatoes, a product offering consumers a burst of colour and flavour, requires precise care and attention to detail to ensure the best possible quality. Similarly, careful planning when getting a greenhouse up and running makes all the difference in the final product.

“All growers understand that making the right hardware choices from the start for their new greenhouses is key to success,” says Robert Thérien, “and while we carefully considered our options, we are confident that Sollum’s technology is the best solution to accomplish our goals.”

Sollum’s dynamic LED grow light solution outshines the competition when it comes to tailoring lighting solutions for specific crops with unmatched precision.“When it comes to tomatoes, consumers can easily tell the difference between a higher and a lower quality product because of the fruit’s depth of flavour. And this is especially true of speciality varieties like cherry tomatoes,” says Rose Séguin, agronomist at Sollum Technologies. “Clients like Les Serres Point du Jour choose our technology because they know that it can be fine-tuned to meet the highly specific lighting needs of their crop varieties, and this helps them maximize the quality of their product.”

As they start their new greenhouse journey, Les Serres Point du Jour will benefit from expert help from Sollum’s team of agronomists and technicians and from access to an unlimited number of light recipes to ensure they are set up perfectly for success.
