Greetings from sunny Tucson and sunny Freising!

During the past two weeks I’ve enjoyed full sunshine, though accompanied by a bit different temperatures, in two continents. First I attended to the LED symposium at the The University of Arizona – CEAC in Tucson (US). All the latest results and ideas presented are available as pdf-files through the event website.

Another meeting was the 50th Horticultural Science Conference in Freising-Weihenstephan (Germany), organized by the Technical University of Munich and the University Weihenstephan-Triesdorf. Topics varied from production of bioactive compounds in carrot, to searching downy mildew resistant basil genotypes and to comparing light spectra in vitro cultivation of ornamental plants: you are encouraged to browse through the book of abstracts.
