Agrokultura Group chooses Hortilux for the next phase
Agrokultura Group is one of the biggest Russian brands in growing fresh vegetables in greenhouses. In August 2016, the company already bought 12 ha of the 1000 Watt HSE NXT II and have decided to purchase the 1000 Watt HSE NXT II again for another 30ha of tomatoes.
Agrokultura Group is a fairly young company that opened their greenhouse in December 2015. They are located just 100km away from Moscow and produce fresh cucumbers and tomatoes year round. They expect to produce 20,000 tons of vegetables in 2017. Agrokultura builds their greenhouses in different phases, and after having used a different brand for phase 1 they chose to work with Hortilux for phase 2 (12ha). The company is impressed with the quality of the Hortilux products and therefore have chosen to work with Hortilux again for phase 3 (30ha).
The Hortilux 1000 Watt HSE NXT II fixture with the BETA reflector is especially developed for high-wire crops. The innovative cooling fins optimally control the temperature in the fixtures.
