This educational program fully focuses on artificial lighting and teaches growers how lighting can optimize efficiency. The program kicks off with an online course about artificial light, given by main trainers Stéphane André and Evripidis Papadopoulos. They focus on the various options currently available for using artificial light during the winter period, in combination with adaptive strategies and goals for this “new growing era”. How much “energy” does each system bring into the greenhouse, how efficient is each system and what is the effect on the plant both short and long term. Some side topics such as intelligent lighting will also be discussed during this course.
