LEDs for greenhouse lighting

E.M. Nederhoff

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


    Light Emitting Diodes (LED's) are a promising technology for greenhouse lighting with their efficiency to activate plant photosynthesis potentially higher in red LEDs than in HPS lamps. Due to their particular light colour, LEDs can initiate special effects in plants or steer plant processes and plant balance
