Ideal Grow Light Environment

How Does Light Affect Plant Growth?

Light can be used to optimize your grow light environment to grow healthy, uniform crops, and benefit from year-round production, increased yields and shorter harvest cycles.

There are three characteristics of light you should consider when designing the ideal light environment for your crops:

·• Light quality
 • Light quantity
 • Light duration.

But how do they work together? Let’s start with defining light quality.

What is Light Quantity?

Light quantity, also known as light intensity, is the total amount of light that hits your crop. Indoor agriculture measures light quantity in PPFD. PPFD is the number of micromoles of light that hit any given square meter of your crop each second.

Can plants use other wavelengths of light for photosynthesis?
While we currently focus on wavelengths in PAR (400-700 nm) for photosynthesis, there is emerging evidence that wavelengths outside of this waveband can contribute to photosynthesis. As LED research continues, we may see a change to the boundaries of the PAR region in the future.

What is the Ideal PPFD?

Every crop has an ideal PPFD that it requires for optimal growth. This light requirement reflects the plants’ natural habitats. For example, plants that grow on forest floors, like orchids, have lower PPFD needs than tomatoes that grow in open valleys.

An ideal light environment achieves your crop’s target PPFD without exceeding it and distributes light uniformly across the plant canopy. This ensures that your crop’s growth is similarly uniform.

Overlighting your crop can cause plant damage and wastes energy. For example, overlighting lettuce can cause tip burn, which makes the damaged plants more difficult to sell.

What is Light Duration?

Light duration is the number of hours of light that your crop receives. Light duration is also called photoperiod. Photoperiod controls flowering, dormancy and other biological responses in many plants.

What is Photoperiodism?

Every crop has an ideal PPFD that it requires for optimal growth. This light requirement reflects the plants’ natural habitats. For example, plants that grow on forest floors, like orchids, have lower PPFD needs than tomatoes that grow in open valleys.

An ideal light environment achieves your crop’s target PPFD without exceeding it and distributes light uniformly across the plant canopy. This ensures that your crop’s growth is similarly uniform.

Overlighting your crop can cause plant damage and wastes energy. For example, overlighting lettuce can cause tip burn, which makes the damaged plants more difficult to sell.
