Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Horticultural Lighting + Tech newsletter for Dec. 5, 2022. The clock has started on our 2023 BrightStar Awards program, recognizing products in the LED and solid-state lighting supply chain that demonstrate innovation, performance, efficiency, reliability, and ease of integration/use. We’ve posted a blog today to highlight some of the most commonly asked questions generated about this industry recognition program in the last year. Check it out and don’t miss out on that Early Bird discount (ends Dec. 20).

We also feature new developments in horticultural experimentation aboard the International Space Station, as well as the most popular horticultural lighting and controlled environment agriculture content we’ve published in 2022. We’re looking forward to recapping each of our hot topics lists and ultimately revealing the top content of the year from LEDs Magazine across the entire breadth of our business news, market analysis, technology development, and case-study coverage. Make sure to renew your subscriptions to stay informed into the new year.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
