A Proposed Horticultural Lighting Label

Recent advances in light-emitting diode (LED) technology now provide the horticultural industry with multiple lighting options. However, growers are often unable to compare technologies and LED options due to insufficient data on lamp performance metrics. As a result, researchers are now proposing a standardized product label that facilitates the comparison of lamps across manufacturers. Dr. A.J. Both from Rutgers University and Ryan Siddon from Intertek will talk about the importance of horticultural lighting standards, the proposed horticultural lighting label and the unique requirements for horticultural luminaires.

Presented by Rutgers University professor and GLASE researcher A.J. Both and Intertek horticultural lighting specialist Ryan Siddon. The webinar was hosted by GLASE director Dr. Erico Mattos.
