LED supplemental lighting can produce as good or better cut gerbera crops than HPS lighting, but at a substantial energy savings.
This project sought to determine the optimum light level for cut snapdragon production during the 2014-15 supplemental lighting season (ie. Nov. to Mar) at higher latitudes.
Poster – Analysis of Arabidopsis Light-Sensitive Mutants Grown Under Different Ratios of LED or Fluorescent Lighting
Overall, our findings suggest no reason to delay a transition to LEDs, even for studies involving light signaling.
Selecting various wavelengths of light can influence the growth and morphology of horticultural crops including the currently popular Phalaenopsis orchid.
Poster – Supplemental LED Lighting Increases Winter Tomato Production in Central North Carolina Greenhouse
This study suggests LED lighting can be beneficial for tomato production even in areas of the country where supplemental lighting is not typically used.
This study demonstrates the effects of different light ratios on basil morphology, flavor and aroma. Through the use of adjustable light treatments, growers can meet the needs of changing market demands.
