LED lighting not only significantly reduces electricity costs for many greenhouse operations, they offer good efficacy, longevity, and control, and can provide narrow wavebands of light — offering unique opportunities for growers to manipulate crop physiology by changing light spectrum and intensity.

These rapidly advancing technologies require a better understanding of the effects of light spectrum and intensity on crop photosynthesis, growth, and development.... Read more
