The lighting in greenhouses course from 3 to 5 April at University of Wageningen, in The Netherlands is now fully booked which has prompted the organisers to set up an additional course from Wednesday 29 to Friday 31 March. So if you want to improve the use of LED lighting in greenhouse production or vertical farming; would you like to know how to reduce energy use and carbon foot print, how to improve production, or how to improve quality or understand the different characteristics of light and how they affect physiological plant processes then this course could be valuable for you. Wageningen UR scientists will share their unique knowledge with international students, researchers, and horticultural and light experts.
Organised by Horticulture & Product Physiology Group at Wageningen Campus and excursion locations the course consists of a mixture of interactive classroom lectures, group discussions, demonstrations, and an excursion day. The course covers the basic principles behind the effects of LED lighting on plant growth, yield, product quality, and energy use efficiency. It aims that participants also understand how to apply this information in their daily practice by developing strategies to optimize the use of lighting in relation to the whole production system.
