Upcoming Webinar – PRIVA’s BioLogics for Plant Growth

This post, authored by Dr. Fadi Al-Daoud, has been reposted from the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetables Blog.

The first installment of the OMAFRA Controlled Environment Agriculture Webinar Series is here! Join us on Thursday January 20th at noon to hear PRIVA’s Peter Kamp talk about a growing strategy that takes transpiration, photosynthesis and the greenhouse climate into consideration. This talk will be of interest to greenhouse vegetable and ornamental growers. Find all the details below and make sure to register in advance!

Title: PRIVA’s BioLogics for Plant Growth
Who: Peter Kamp, Crop Systems Innovator, PRIVA
Date: Thursday, January 20, 2022
Time: 12:00–1:00 PM EST (lunch and learn)
Where: ZOOM
Registration: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_V5ANwyQgTxCMcV00A5oahg

Presentation Description:
Peter Kamp will present a new steering principle to achieve crop goals based on the overall water balance of the plant. The unique starting point of this steering principle is a feed-forward control for the greenhouse climate and water-supply, based on water uptake, fixation of water and transpiration of the crop. The control follows the plant’s circadian rhythm in terms of growth and crop development and can be specifically tuned to the crop goals of the grower.
