Greetings from sunny Tucson and sunny Freising!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

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.

The blog posts are written by Valoya’s biologists and engineers. All of the content is original and is aimed at helping growers and researchers get a better understanding of the LED grow light technology.
