Bringing Industry Experts Into One Room

For a decade now, Valoya has been pushing the field of photobiology forward by creating the best horticultural lighting solutions in the world. The focus has always been on solid scientific research based on which we develop LED solutions designed to help growers reach their goals efficiently. After having sold to more than 50 countries, we wanted to bring together experts from some of our most prominent installations, to share their cultivation experiences with you.

The Crop Science and Light section will be kicked off with Valoya’s biologist, Ms. Stefanie Linzer, discussing high quality white LED light for crop science applications. Not all white LED light is the same and this session is a good venue to learn if and why one should consider switching from fluorescent, HPS, MH or other traditional lighting technologies to LED.

The Hard Science Talk on Medicinal Cannabis will once more be hosted by Dr. Gianpaolo Grassi, one of Europe’s leading Cannabis sativa researchers. This time around, the topic of discussion will be terpenes within which data will be presented from the latest trial Dr. Grassi conducted on cannabis.

The third and final content block is titled Vertical Farming Innovators Panel. The panel will consist of:

  • Mr. Gus van der Feltz, the Chairman of FTS (Farm Tech Society), a body that helps establish and fosters the rapid development of the entire, global vertical farming industry,
  • Mr. Henry Gordon-Smith, the Founder of Agritecture, a consulting company that has helped establish various vertical farms around the world and
  • Mr. Mark Korzilius, CEO & Co-Founder of Farmers Cut, one of Germany’s most notable vertical farms

Mr. Lars Aikala, Valoya’s CEO will moderate the discussion.
