    Horticulture lighting: growth like never before


    The world’s population growth and ongoing climate change are just two of the challenges that will have a major impact on food production and horticulture in the 21st century. A new scientific understanding of the effects of light on plant growth and greenhouse management can be a key contributor to safeguarding a steady supply of fruits, vegetables, and flowers.

    In this Light Bite series Horticulture LED Lighting: Growth Like Never Before, you will discover how light forms an integral part of plant growth and how new technologies and insights are opening up innovative solutions to the challenges that horticulture will face in the future.

    Population growth
    The first video explores the connection between plants and lighting – how do plants “see” light and how do different aspects of a light recipe (color, light integrals, and intensity) help optimize plant growth?

    The second in the series discusses lighting in greenhouses. The speakers will talk about the current status of LED lighting in greenhouses and how it not only helps promote plant growth in vegetables, fruits, and flowers, it also adds value for growers in business case calculations.

    The final video in the series examines growing plants without daylight, which will be available for viewing on June 15th. Experts will explain how implementing the perfect light conditions and controlling other climatic factors can take horticulture to the next level, where daylight is no longer required for optimal plant growth.
