GLASE launches new greenhouse systems short course

January 29, 2024  By Greenhouse Canada

Jan. 29, 2024 – The Cornell University Greenhouse Lighting and Systems Engineering (GLASE) consortium will deliver their latest virtual short course with a focus on three interactive greenhouse systems. Experts from academia and industry will share how growers can select and operate greenhouse coverings, climate screens, and supplemental horticultural lighting.

The Greenhouse Systems Short Course is an educational series that will explore three major systems maintaining greenhouse environments and their interactive effects. To showcase the ways these systems improve plant quality and yields and save energy in greenhouses, industry experts will define the types of commercially available coverings, curtains, and lighting systems, show how these systems work together to support plant growth and development, and share real-world case studies. 

The 2024 GLASE Short Course will run from April 4 to May 9 and will feature six 90-minute modules presented over six weeks on Thursdays from 2 – 3:30 pm ET.
