Project description

The common thread throughout the project is the use of light (LED lighting) and plant hormones in floriculture. The research focuses on: (1) storage and transport;(2) adventitious rooting of cuttings and hardening of tissue culture plants; (3) branching and; (4) pigmentation of leaf/flower. Beside research the project has a valorisation part and the start-up of the Knowledge Platform Plant Physiology.
