Science, standards, and market transformation

  • Light recipe science advances based on individual cultivars and varying stages of the growth cycle
  • Understanding the way sunlight and circadian patterns impact plants and how software and simulation can enable similar results with LEDs.
  • Industry organizations continue to evolve horticultural metrics and the scope of standards
  • Horticultural lighting catches the attention of regulatory bodies and market transformation programs

Projects/Case studies

  • Vertical farms promise to feed a growing population
  • Cannabis: An indoor case study — but is the future outdoors?
  • Fruiting cultivar requirements in horticultural lighting
  • How and will LED lighting come into play with field crops

Lighting technologies and advancements

  • LEDs serve in primary and supplemental roles, including alongside HID fixture
  • Plants benefits from varying SPD, but how can growers economically deliver the optimum SPD
  • Fixture designs evolve both to deliver the needed spectrum but also the optimum beam distribution
  • Adding UV to the spectrum mix yields unexpected results in yield and characteristics
  • Why connected lighting makes more sense for plants than people
