Webinar: How to grow edible crops with LED Lighting

LED lighting technology is being used by more and more growers because of benefits that include faster growth, more flowering and improved coloration. Philips Lighting and GrowerTalks are hosting a webinar to learn how LEDs can improve growth of lettuce, leafy greens, herbs and high-wire tomatoes and cucumbers on Wednesday, April 19, 7:00 p.m. CET / 1:00 p.m. EDT / Noon CDT

In this webinar, you’ll learn:
  • The benefits of adding supplemental light to your edible crop growing area
  • Factors to consider when comparing LED to high-pressure sodium
  • The effect of LED blue and red spectrum on crop growth
Hosted by Chris Beytes, editor, GrowerTalks/Green Profit and Acres Online.
