Tomato Research: Exploring the Impact of Light on Tomato Plants and Yield
August 27, 2020 @ 8:00 am CDT
In this webinar, Fluence experts from the Horticulture Service and Research teams will discuss the evolution of supplemental lighting in modern greenhouse high-wire crop production.
The research team will discuss two crucial experiments that improve our collective understanding of light and tomato production. First, Dr. Dave Hawley will present the findings of the high-pressure sodium and white light LED on two cultivars of tomatoes. Then, Dr. Haris Ouzounis will present the latest research on four different LED spectra treatments on two varieties.
Both experiments were conducted in winter time in collaboration with Wageningen University in the Netherlands. This recording will only be available to those who register, please join us for a first look into the research and ask any questions you may have on light and its interaction with high-wire tomato production.
