Tulips in Holland
Rainbow Colors and Horizon Flowers
Located in The Netherlands, Rainbow Colors and Horizon Flowers produce close to 100 million tulips each year. At the greenhouses, performance and flexibility are crucial - as is maintaining stable two-layer cultivation in winter. The companies were looking for a dynamic system with a focus on light efficiency and the possibility to provide each tulip variety with a different type of light.
The FL300 Grow is now installed throughout the entire greenhouses. For optimal light control, the FL300 system is combined with the LCC4 climate control system, which monitors all greenhouse parameters while controlling the various light recipes and light levels.
System trials revealed a unique advantage: the ability to provide each tulip variety with customized light recipes. Some tulips required stretching, while others needed color enhancing. The FL300 and LCC4 combination has proved itself up to the task.
Bas Karsten, CEO at Rainbow Colors says:
"After evaluating different LED manufacturers we chose the FL300 LED system from Senmatic. It won on three parameters: Price, light efficiency and the possibility to control the light."
