Caro(a) Colega,

o webcast de hoje é sobre os benefícios da iluminação a LED em plantações. Confira a resenha:

Horticultural lighting is heating up the SSL market due to its ability to maximize crop yields, whether the light is produced in the visible or UV spectrum. In this dual-presenter webcast, DNA Group is prepared to explain how UV LEDs can add to the benefits that are already proven in LED-based horticultural lighting, targeting spectral energy to plant needs and reducing energy usage relative to HID lighting. And CSA Group will light up your knowledge of SSL metrics and how to leverage LED performance to influence growing operations.

So, what’s so great about UV LEDs? According to DNA Group, ultraviolet LEDs are about to take over the horticultural supplemental lighting market as a replacement for mercury bulbs. Most plants are thirsty for UV light to some degree, and growers are thirsty for a product in this category that won’t scorch their plants, break the bank, or harm employees. Strategically applied UV light (especially UVB) increases THC and terpene levels in cannabis, enhances flavor and visuals of lettuces and herbs, makes strawberries and tomatoes redder and more nutritious, and can double the shelf life of produce. Emily Vaughan of DNA Group will cover the foundational biology that causes these benefits, explain why UV LEDs beat the alternatives, cover any worker safety concerns, and help you make an educated purchase if you’re considering these products for your farm.

Horticultural sciences are in the midst of an artificial lighting Renaissance. The utilization of spectrally broadband light sources for indoor plant growth has been around since the late 1800s; however, with advancements in LED technology, horticultural scientists can now easily experiment with combinations of precisely targeted spectral distributions. While launching photomorphogenics into a newfound infancy, LEDs have also allowed drastic improvement in biomass/kW.h in many lucrative cash crops. Standards are in a race to keep up with this quickly evolving intersection of science and technology. KC Fletcher of CSA Group will explain how to properly characterize horticultural lighting products in a way that is more usable for the application — the key to determining how effective they actually are.


What You’ll Learn:

  • Benefits of exposing plants to UVB light
  • Is it safe?
  • Is it affordable?
  • What can it do for cannabis? Fruit/veg? Ornamental?
  • What research is there on this?

Who Should Attend:

  • Product Development
  • Sourcing / Procurement
  • Manufacturing / Engineers
