From 13-15 October 2019 the Horticulture and Product Physiology group, together with representatives of the University of Bologna (Italy) and the University of Arizona (USA), organizes a workshop on Vertical Farming.
This international workshop on Vertical Farming is organized under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science.
Vertical farming is a next level production system, which allows production of plants at any place including the most urbanized regions of the world. The use of LED light and the full control of both the aboveground and belowground conditions in combination with the right cultivar, enables growers to produce products with extra added value, which appeal to the demand of consumers for safe, reliable, and tasty, nutritious food.
This workshop combines a number of oral presentations of world leading horticultural researchers, panel discussions with renowned companies, short oral and poster presentations on the latest research results on vertical farming.
The course language will be English - you can download the workshop flyer here.
