BeNeLuxSHS 2015 Symposium: Plant control by LED light

Published on
September 17, 2015

LEDs provide exciting new possibilities to modulate spectrum and direction of light, to control instantaneously light intensity, and to decouple lighting from heating. This allows not only to control growth, development and yield of plants, but also to control quality, disease resistance and last but not least to save energy.

The 2015 annual symposium of the Benelux Society for Horticultural Science will include presentations from several researchers active in the Benelux. They will present the latest insights on control of plant production by LED light. There will also be an extensive discussion on city farm and the use of LEDs therein.

This symposium is open to everyone who is interested in the use of LED lighting for production of plants in horticulture. We expect that a nice mix of researchers, advisors  and private companies will participate.

The symposium is organised by Wageningen University (Chair Group Horticulture and Product Physiology) and the Campus of Wageningen UR is the location for this meeting.
We expect many people to participate, while the number of symposium participants has limits. So don’t wait too long with registration.
The registration fee is 30 euro for students and members of BeNeLux SHS; for others the fee is 45 euro. Lunch is included in the fee.

If you are interested in attending the symposium please find a detailed programme, time-schedule and registration form on To register, return the registration form to not later than 30 September 2015.
