KEUDA is the leading educational organization for gardeners in Finland what comes to led lighting. First trials with led´s were started in 2014, when Netled delivered lighting for growing tests for salad, herbs and pot plants. Several varieties and plants were tested and after 2 years of successful growing tests two greenhouses were installed with all-led solution.
KEUDA produces salads, herbs, variety of pot plants and their own vegetable seedlings. Leds help to produce better quality and higher light intensities with less energy consumption. All-led solution gives also great platform for students to adapt new growing technologies; they are this way more ready to the real working environments, since led lighting is rapidly getting standard in commercial greenhouses.
“We have got great results in vegetable seedlings and colorization of poinsettia. Also amaryllis grows in more beautiful form. With all led solution we can also get longer season for our salad and herb production, for which we have great local demand.”
