Posted on: June 20th, 2019 by Kirenaga Partners

Violet Gro has announced it is working with researchers from University of Florida Institute of Food & Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Mid-Florida Research and Education Center (MREC) to further explore the use of ultraviolet light in indoor growing environments to identify the best ways to grow plants that produce compounds of medicinal and therapeutic value, including industrial hemp. While prior studies have demonstrated the numerous benefits of UV light to indoor grow environments, there has been little research conducted specifically around the introduction of UV into indoor grow environments for hemp.
