Trial aims to show how LEDs can be used to steer commercial crop : green or blue light can steer plant growth

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

The application of LED lighting in greenhouse horticulture is still in its infancy. A few nurseries are already using LEDs, mostly red and blue. But still little is known about how the different light colours work precisely on the physiology of the plant. Research by Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture in the Netherlands shows that blue and green LEDs can be used to steer a crop. A large greenhouse trial should give insight into how this can be applied in practise.
