Light Science Technologies to Share CEA Expertise at Indoor AgTech

John Matcham, Innovation Director at Light Science Technologies

CEA specialist Light Science Technologies (LST) will be addressing the future of precision growing with some of the industry’s most important players when it exhibits at the Indoor AgTech Innovation Summit in New York on June 23-24.

Forming part of an 90+ speaker faculty, LST’s Innovation Director John Matcham will share his insights during a Fireside Chat on the first day of the two-day show, alongside Ihor Lys, Co-Founder & CTO of Agnetix and Signify’s Global Director City Farming, Ellis Janssen Van Boxtel. Key highlights on the ‘Fireside Chat’ agenda for Beyond Lighting: The Future of Precision Growing will include expert advice on how growers can optimize sensors, precision growing and lighting technologies. John will also be sharing his insight on designing the next generation of lighting systems to balance yield optimization with energy efficiency and carbon reduction.

In addition, the company will use the exhibition as an opportunity to showcase its latest product developments featuring its award-winning technology, and to network with both existing and prospective customers across the global market.

LST has recently unveiled its new sensorGROW, enabling growers to harness real time and historical data of their growing environment to help reduce food waste, decrease energy and increase yield. Also new to the market is its new tuneable LED luminaire from LST’s nurturGROW range, for vertical farms and other multi-layer growth applications. The luminaire’s slimline design is specifically suited for use in a closed, climate controlled growing facility to maximize space, thanks to its lower profile and bespoke length. Introduced to the market last year, the nurturGROW lighting range reduces light wastage with its recyclable and reusable design so it is more sustainable.

As one of the highlights on the CEA event calendar, the summit will welcome back the indoor agtech community after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. It is expected to unite more than 500 international growers, operators, tech providers, seed companies, food retailers, investors and start-ups.

Andy Williams, Marketing Director at LST, commented: “It’s been an incredibly hectic but exciting year for us as CEA comes of age. We’ve launched several new products to help growers with cost and energy savings. Rising energy costs are affecting everyone around the globe, so we feel it’s an important opportunity to be at such a major show and talk to visitors about the cost-effective and energy-saving benefits our solutions offer, while growing more sustainably.

“AgTech is forcing a revolutionary and much-needed shake-up of the global food system. It’s an exciting time for the market and an important opportunity for us to meet with delegates in New York.”

John Matcham will speak on the Fireside Chat / Beyond Lighting: The Future of Precision Growing Session at 12.30pm US Eastern Time (ET) on Thursday June 23.
