The beneficial effects of ultraviolet light on higher animals such as chickens, rats, and human beings are now well known. It has been used with great success in the treatment of such diseases of man as tuberculosis of the skin, bones, or viscera, skin diseases of various kinds, rickets, and tetany. Not so well known, perhaps, are the harmful effects of ultraviolet light on various organisms. Bacteria, for example, are readily killed by the so-called ^'middle ultraviolet ^\ that is, by…

TLDR
It was found that the amount of injury to plant tissue increases rapidly with decreasing wave length between 290 and 200 mgt, and a plant which is only slightly injured by a single io-minute irradiation through a certain filter will receive very little further injury when irradiated through that same filter each day.
