Recent advances in LED-based luminaire design have enabled greenhouse operators to temporally control both the photon flux density (PFD) and spectral irradiance incident upon the plant canopy.
Supplemental electric lighting for greenhouses may be essential for extending the growing season in northern climates, but it comes with a not-so-hidden cost: environmental light pollution.
SunTracker Technologies is incredibly proud of our Senior Scientist, Ian Ashdown, to be presenting with IES Vancouver on Going Green – Lighting Design for Horticulture.
