Event Information

About this webinar : The science of illuminating plants artificially, has been known to humans for quite a long time now, however the purpose of illuminating plants has been different based on the application. Artificial light for controlled photosynthesis has been most used in controlled growth of the flowering and vegetative plants to generate higher yield of plant produce. In urban spaces concept of green wall has been widely accepted for wellness and space aesthetic reasons, illuminating these walls has been a challenge as it needs to enhance visual perception and stimulate process of photosynthesis too. Mostly Lamps with higher fluency and high photo-synthetically active radiation have been used for the purpose. With LED the application strategies for artificial lighting is quite different, this requires understanding of the specific wave lengths stimulating the process of photosynthesis, and other factors affecting the growth of the plants.

Through discussions, views of the varied professionals, manufacturers, and academicians, shall unfold the various aspects of horticulture lighting. Understand the effects of artificial light and its attributes on various factors of stimulation of photosynthesis and relative growth of the plants.
