Effects of Light Quality on Growth of Crop Plants under Artificial Lighting

  title={Effects of Light Quality on Growth of Crop Plants under Artificial Lighting},
  author={Eiji Goto},
Major light factors affecting plant growth are light quality, light intensity, photoperiod, and the day/night cycle. These parameters can be controlled under greenhouse conditions using artificial light sources. Moreover, application of light pulses and shortterm changes of the spectral composition are effective ways to stimulate plants and to induce desired morphological developments. Controlling spectral qualities of the irradiation applied enables faster growth or higher yield at a given… CONTINUE READING
