Horticulture lighting is one of today's fastest growing markets.  A  facilitated panel of researchers, educators and industry experts will explore this evolving specialty and the impact that advanced lighting technologies are having on how we grow, harvest and source a wide variety of crops.  Attendees will learn about horticulture lighting metrics and the way growers are using prescribed spectrum, intensity and timing to manipulate plant growth and yield.  Horticulture Lighting experts from different viewpoints will share their knowledge of Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) and how intelligent lighting systems are poised to radically impact the future of crop production while enabling  the design of buildings to sustainably harvest nutritious foods and medicines.


Expert panelist includes:

Tessa Pocock, Ph.D, Light Enabled Systems & Applications, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Fred Green, Cultivation Specialist

Jay Marshall, Lux Grow

Shawn Cooney, Corner Stalk Farm


There will be table top displays of horticultural lighting systems on view before the main event.
