Webinar: Is all white light the same?

More and more LEDs are going from purple to white. Is there any difference among the countless white LED light options on the market, in addition to fluorescent? Cool white, warm white, full spectrum white, fluorescent, white with UV and far red etc. How to evaluate these choices?

In this free webinar we break down the differences among different types of white horticultural lighting. We will present the results of comparative plant trials we conducted using a variety of our own and other LED providers’ luminaires.

Spectra appearing white to human eyes contain a variety of spectrum colors, including green. Humans can distinguish them in terms of their temperature (e.g. warm white and cool white) and CRI (color rendering index) which determines how realistic objects appear under them.

Plants however can have dramatically different reactions to light that appears nearly the same to us. The example here shows the difference in biomass accumulation from three light sources that look exactly the same!

This webinar is aimed at growers and researchers trying to understand which kind of light to illuminate their growth chambers, indoor farms and greenhouse compartments with.
