LED Symposium

A symposium on LED lighting will be held at the University Of Arizona, Tucson (AZ), on 19-20 February 2015. The symposium is organised by the University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC) in conjunction with the USDA SCRI (Specialty Crop Research Initiative) LED project members from Purdue University, University of Arizona, Michigan State University, Rutgers University and industry partner Orbitec. The symposium will provide SCRI LED project members and other nationally recognised research groups the opportunity to bring the latest information, understanding, and assessments of the use of LEDs in horticulture through oral presentations.

Three major topics will be covered in this symposium:

1. Plant responses under sole-source LED lighting,

2. Plant responses under supplemental (high intensity) or photoperiodic (low intensity) LED lighting in greenhouses, and

3. LED technology development, evaluation, and economics.

All activities (except reception) will take place at the University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center: 1951 E. Roger Rd., Tucson, AZ 85719.
