The HAS University in den Bosch The Netherlands is one of the most famous universities in Europe when it comes down on horticulture and applied science knowledge. In their own professional greenhouse facilities they cultivate a wide variety of crops. Since September 2018 the HAS and MechaTronix partner on assimilation light trials for strawberries.
In a first plant trial strawberries from the Sonsation cultivar are grown under both SON-T HPS lamps and de CoolStack® LED lamps from MechaTronix.
Sonsation has been developed by the Flevo Berry breeding program and is a rather new cultivar which produces bright red berries with an intensive gloss.
In the trial both with HPS and LED the PAR light level PPFD is set at 200µmol/sm² as there is a strong upward tendency to cultivate under higher light levels. The plants went in the greenhouse on September 3rd. All parameters like harvest, brix, vitamin C, ambient conditions etc are logged by a dedicated team of the HAS.

Who cultivates paprika in the west side of Europe for sure knows the Research Centre Hoogstraten (PCH) in Belgium. Research Centre Hoogstraten (PCH) is located in the north of Antwerp in the middle of an important horticultural area.Since its foundation in 1955 the centre plays an active role in the development and growth of the horticulture in the region and abroad. A team of 42 professionals run over 160 plant trials per year with specialization in greenhouse cultivation techniques for strawberries, tomatoes and parika.
In the light of innovative new cultivation methods, MechaTronix and the PCH started an advanced trial on paprika growth under LED grow lights.
The trial runs from October 2018 onwards. Various light level intensities are created in the greenhouse ranging from a PPFD of 80µmol/sm² all the way up to 280µmol/sm².

A good example of the wide interest of MechaTronix in the specialization in a broad crop variety knowledge is this advanced plant balance trial on Bromeliads. In this trial the BCO Bromelia, a division from the LTO Glaskracht, Plant Lighting, Botany and MechaTronix cooperate on finding the ideal growth circumstances to grow bromeliads in the Netherlands and Belgium in a greenhouse environment.
As cultivars Guzmania and Vriesea where selected. The trial runs from October 2018 onwards.
