SoulFood Greenhouse

NorthPark Presbyterian Church, located in Dallas, Texas, has discovered a new way to enrich their community. Built in 2017, SoulFood is a year-round hydroponic greenhouse dedicated to producing and donating fresh organic vegetables to surrounding neighborhoods in need.

Project Details

Location: Dallas, Texas

Crop: Tomatoes

Luminaire: HortiLED Top

Project Results

Given the height to which tomato plants can grow, as well as the high DLI requirement upwards of 22 moles/ day, directing light uniformly deep within the plant canopy is essential to optimize yield and quality. For this reason, the HortiLED Top luminaire with red/blue (medium blue) spectrum was the ideal solution. The HortiLED Top with 150-degree distribution provides exceptional uniformity across a wider area of the plant canopy. This allows wider spacing between plants, reducing the number of luminaires while maintaining desired light levels and uniformity.
