GLASE to Present Lighting Webinar

“Lighting Approaches to Maximize Profits” will be the subject of the latest webinar from Greenhouse Lighting and Systems Engineering (GLASE).

Mark can Iersel, professor at the University of Georgia, will present the free one-hour webinar on April 16 at 2 p.m. EDT

Supplemental lighting is often necessary for year-round greenhouse production of ornamentals and vegetables. However, the cost of providing supplemental light is high. It is therefore important that supplemental light is provided in a way that provides the greatest benefits for the crop, at the lowest possible price.

To do so, it is important to understand the cost of providing supplemental light as well as how plants use that light. Accurate weather predictions can help minimize the risk of providing more excess light than is required by a specific crop.

During the webinar, van Iersel will discuss how growers need to account for these factors to help grow high-quality, profitable crops.
