We must enhance crop productivity in controlled environments.

One emerging option, as LEDs become cheaper, is light quality and quantity. Managing the spectrum and quantum of light for plants becomes not just feasible but desirable in these circumstances.

This talk will drill down into how growers can stimulate plants to improve quality and yield.


James Stevens is a Lecturer in the School of Life Sciences. His research interests include plant biology, and molecular physiology of plants.
