Focus on Light Spectrum for Horticulture Event

The impact of light on commercial horticulture goes beyond driving growth via photosynthesis.  Specific wavelengths of light are capable of manipulating plant shape, colour of leaves and flowers, rooting, chemical composition and timing of flowering, as well as attracting pests out of crops and preventing disease spread.  This event, aimed at growers and their technical representatives, provides an update on how Spectral Filters and Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) may generate commercial benefits for both edible and ornamental crops and to review the experiences of some of the early adopters of this technology from the industry.  Delegates will have an opportunity to tour the new LED4Crops facility at STC.
