Conference "LED technology: ecology, landscape, agrophonics" and the meeting of Svetotekhnika Scientific and Technology Council to discuss the role of photoculture for the development of the agricultural sector in Russia
On October 26-27, 2018, the Botanical Garden of Moscow State University "Apothecary’s Garden" will host a scientific-practical conference "LED technology: ecology, landscape, agrophonics". The main theme of the event will be the use of artificial lighting based on LED technology in the industrial cultivation of crop plants.
The conference will be held in the traditional format of presentations by speakers. They will include scientists whose research activities are related to the subject of the event, experts in the practice of agro-industry and representatives of the companies-manufacturers of lighting equipment that is used to illuminate plants based on photo-culture technology. Such a wide and diverse range of participants will make it possible to reveal in the course of the discussion all aspects of the development of photoculture as a factor in increasing the efficiency of enterprises in the agro-industrial complex of Russia.
The information richness of speeches and a comprehensive study of their topics will be the leitmotifs of the expanded meeting of the Illuminating Installations of Photobiological Action Section of Svetotekhnika Scientific and Technology Council, one of the most important points of the conference program. G.V. Boos, Chairman of the Svetotekhnika Scientific and Technology Council, Ph.D. in Engineering Science., President of ILEC “BL GROUP” LLC, will make a welcoming speech. The speakers will include a representative of the Corporation V.G. Terekhov (head of the promotion department) who will acquaint the audience with the topic “New high-performance LED phytoradiators GALAD”. Sincere interest will be aroused by the report “LED phytoradiators: standards, metrics, photo-biological studies, projects with their use” by L.B. Prikupets, leading expert in the field of photoculture, head of section, Ph.D. in Engineering Science (Russian Lighting Research Institute named after S.I. Vavilov).
Like a diamond – with the play of its facets, the agenda sparkles with a variety of topics. Here are just a few examples: “Green crops for hydroponics”, “Experience in using LEDs: from aquatic plants to succulents”, “Practice in using low-energy LEDs for growing medicinal, decorative, agricultural and industrial crops in phytotron conditions, using the method of aeroponics”.
The objective of the conference is to make the transition of scientifically based solutions to their commercial use as efficient and fast as possible. At the site, where leading experts on the subject will gather, it will be possible to announce the advantages of products for the greenhouse lighting under the GALAD trademark, including new products – luminaries of Twin Phyto LED, Archline Phyto LED and Top Phyto LED model ranges that will be presented at the upcoming Interlight 2018 exposition. GALAD is a trademark of products manufactured at domestic enterprises of ILEC “BL GROUP” LLC.
The conference will surely have a special atmosphere, because it will take place in a landmark place for the agro industry – the oldest botanical garden in Russia, the imprint of which in the development of the national agro-industrial complex is visible even in the depths of the 18th century!
