Light influences many aspects of crop biology, and LEDs provide a novel means to manipulate many of these responses to benefit ornamentals crop production. AHDB funded work at Stockbridge Technology Centre (STC) is helping the protected crops industry learn how to manage the light spectrum to control plant growth and development.

On 1st December, STC will be holding an open day to update growers with the results of the ongoing work, and relating this to the potentials for ornamentals production. There will be tours of both the indoor LED facility as well as the LED glasshouse trials.
