- Vegetables: tomatoes
- Production Systems: general crop production
Agriculturalists are content with a seasonal income. The demand for fresh, high quality produce is year round. Cost and environmental factors play major roles in the lack of winter tomato production. All hydroponic operations shut down during late November, early December and prepare to start back in late March or early April. I propose that by utilizing a movable lighting system to cut down on production costs while increasing the amount of available light, a year round product can be grown.
