On Tuesday, March 28, World Horti Center is organizing the fourth ∑-Grow Inside seminar. A new panel of professionals is diving into an interesting topic: ‘How does a plant react in an indoor farm?’. The results of the Fieldlab Vertical Farming research form the basis of the discussion. The seminar can be watched online or live at World Horti Center.
How does a plant react in an indoor farm?
During the seminar on March 28, the panel will discuss the relationship between plants and technology. The basis of this discussion is the insights of the Fieldlab Vertical Farming research. This research project was launched in January 2020 in the Netherlands and took place at several locations in the province of South Holland. The Netherlands has a leading position when it comes to horticulture as well as indoor farming. To maintain this leading position, Fieldlab Vertical Farming was launched. After two years of ongoing research, the first results can be discussed.
World Horti Center is happy to announce that Gert-Jan van Staalduinen, CEO at Logiqs, Laura Bautista, Project Leader of Vertical Farming at Delphy B.V., Stefan van de Voort, Plant Specialist Indoor Farming at Philips Horticulture LED Solutions, and Caterina Carpineti, Researcher Vertical Farming at Business Unit Greenhouse Horticulture and Flower Bulbs at Wageningen University and Research form the panel during this fourth ∑-Grow Inside seminar. Matthijs van den Beukel acts as moderator and steers the panel in the right direction.
