Ceravision at NIAB Grow Lighting Workshop
Thursday 17th Oct 2019, Ceravision at the NIAB Industry Workshop on Advances in Grow Lighting.....
Ceravision's Dr Stuart Mucklejohn presented a lecture entitled 'All Light is Not the Same' to explain how plants need more than PAR light in greenhouse cultivation, they also need the vital UV-A and UV-B to grow to their full potential. Ceravision also showcased our unique complementary UV420 grow-light at this high profile industry work shop (see details here). The National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) is a plant science research company based in Cambridge, UK and organised this event at the Sophi Taylor Conference Centre in Cambridge. Other prominent speakers included:
- Erik Runkle of Michigan State University – “Considerations and U.S. perspectives when selecting an LED fixture for greenhouse applications”
- Dirk Ludolph of LWK Niedersachsen – “LED light for ornamentals – more than fairy lights”
- Dr Gareth John of LIA – “Lighting systems and operator safety”.
NIAB is organising this grower-focused event as an essential knowledge exchange workshop, to offer a platform for growers of all protected crops to engage and discuss the latest lighting related products and innovations in horticulture lighting.
