Brian is investigating the use of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for supplemental lighting in the production of greenhouse ornamental seedlings. By comparing the growth and development of seedlings grown under new LED fixtures and conventional high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamps, he hopes to understand the advantages and limitations of this emerging technology for application in Michigan’s greenhouse production industry. Brian is from London, Ontario and received his bachelor’s degree in plant science from the University of Guelph.
