Do you already know all the different possibilities with LEDs in horticulture? LED can be used in greenhouses as assimilation light, on top or in between the canopy, but also as steering light. There are also possibilities in multi layer systems.

Thanks to the initiative of Agentschap Innoveren & Ondernemen we will discover the effect of LED light on plants and how this energy saving way of lighting is economically justified. Research, expertise and practical tools will be presented during an interactive knowledge fair. Cultivation of ornamentals, vegetables and strawberries with LEDs will be discussed. Afterwards you are kindly invited to participate in the network reception with visits to the exhibition stands of LED manufacturers.
