Purdue LED Open House Scheduled for Later This Month
Purdue University will host an open house on Jan. 31, to showcase its latest research on light emitting diode (LED) technology being conducted in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture.
Attendees will have the opportunity to see supplemental and sole-source (multilayer chamber) LED lighting of plugs, LED photoperiodic lighting of annuals, end of production LED lighting to enhance foliage color, and tower intra-canopy supplemental LED lighting of tomatoes. Benchtop root-zone heating research of bedding plants also will be highlighted.
The open house will take place from 1 until 5 p.m. in the university’s horticulture greenhouse located at the corner of Marsteller and Harrison streets on Purdue’s West Lafayette, Ind. campus.
