According to the results of monitoring cucumber hybrid “Atlet” in March 2017, in LLC Ukraflora-Vinnitsa Anthracite-type greenhouse and the use of inter-row supplementary lighting lamps manufactured by LLC “INTER-PRIVAT”.  The following can be noted:

in relation to control a control group (without supplementary lighting) the plants have to be qualitatively different, the color of the leaves and the fruit is darker. Fruits are evenly shaped and sized.

Experimental conditions are as follow: the total area of the experiment is 168 m2 (3 rows * 140 plants = 420 plants), density 2,5 plants/m2.

Total amount of lighting during the period from March 1 to March 31 was 30 022 J / s2, which is twice as much than in the previous month.

1300,9 kg were harvested during March from plants cultivated with the use of supplementary lighting, this corresponds to 7,74 kg / m2.

63930.5 kg were collected from the rest of the greenhouse area (9832 m2, except for the experimental area), which is 6.5 kg / m2.

Thus, we can conclude that the use of inter-row supplementary lighting by LLC INTER-PRIVAT LLC, led to the increase in yield in comparison with the control group in March 2017 of 1.24 kg / m2 or 19.1%. The effect of supplementary lighting on the increase of yield and quality of the product gradually offsets in comparison with control group due to the increase in natural lighting.
