Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterProfessional


Various quality parameters of strawberries can be improved by the application of extra LED lighting on the plants and fruits during cultivation. This is the finding of the demonstration of IDC Flavour in Bleiswijk in the autumn of 2014. The demonstration was performed with two common cultivars, Elsanta and Sonata. Three different illumination treatments were applied during cultivation.
