Mucci Farms using LEDs for strawberry trials

Sollum Technologies, a Montreal-based company, is the new lighting supplier for Mucci's greenhouse strawberry trials.

November 14, 2022

Mucci Farms, per a press release from Sollum Technologies, is using Sollum's dynamic LED grow light fixtures at its 72-acre Boemberry, Ontario facility. 

"No other technology can give us such control over the quality of our light like Sollum's can," says Bert Mucci, CEO of Mucci Farms. "The unparalleled precision, accuracy and flexibility of our new light fixtures will be determining factors in the success of our experiments."

Sollum's dynamic LED light fixtures "provide unmatched benefits in terms of spectrum and intensity control," the release states. They allow growers to apply an infinite number of light recipes from a playbook or custom-designed one. They can be changed over time without needing to install new fixtures, mechanical equipment or software adjustments. The light in the greenhouse will also automatically adjust to ambient light to ensure consistently accurate lighting conditions.

"The experiments are under way, and we are looking forward to see the results because strawberry cultivation is regarded as complex and, as a result, demanding”, says Louis Brun, CEO of Sollum Technologies. “Thanks to our SUN as a Service platform monitoring and the expertise of our team of agronomists, technicians and engineers, Boem Berry Farms is benefiting from 24/7 support to ensure that all trials are successful."
