On Monday 29 February the state secretary of Economic Affairs Martijn van Dam visited Wageningen UR. He also visited experiments of the Horticulture and Product Physiology group on the use of LED-lighting for growing plants in greenhouses.
PhD-candidate Yongran Ji of our group presented one of his experiments. Ji is doing research as part of the project 'LED it be 50%', in which several universities and companies are jointly working on a reduction of energy use for artificial lighting in greenhouse horticulture.
