Due to the recent emergence of the COVID-19 virus, there is growing interest in the application of ultraviolet (UV) energy. This interest mainly centers around the use of UV disinfection in hospitals and other settings. However, UV has also been shown to be effective in preventing or combating several types of plant diseases in controlled-environment agriculture and in field production. This webinar will review recent research on the use of UV for a variety of purposes, including disinfection. It will also discuss the efficacy of UV in combating viruses, such as COVID-19, along with UV safety and photodegradation issues.
