Welcome to the Horticultural Lighting + Tech newsletter for May 2, 2022. We've got news on the events and education front. First, on May 11 we'll host our next webinar, focused on component selection and systems development considerations for horticultural lighting. Lumileds' Willem Sillevis-Smitt, Inventronics' Breanna McElroy, and Future Lighting Solutions' Patrick Durand will explore practical integration questions, going beyond the datasheets. Register to join us for the one-hour presentation.
Second, the organizers of the Resilient Harvests Conference have opened the Call for Abstracts for the November event. Send in your proposals by May 23 regarding facilities best practices; regulations, codes, and standards; and programs and technology that will advance controlled environment agriculture into a stable, high-growth sector for food, floral, and cannabis production.
