LED lighting technology is being used by more and more growers because of benefits that include faster growth, more flowering and improved coloration.

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
