). Therefore, the use of LEDs as a supplemental light source enables fine control of the light environment. Light conditions, including intensity, wavelength, and photoperiod, affect several aspects of plant physiology, including plant growth and flower

settings of 22/21 °C. Supplemental light was provided from a combination of high-pressure sodium (250 W) and metal halide (400 W) lights for up to 15 h·d −1 (0700 hr to 2200 hr ) when light levels fell below 450 μmol·m −2 ·s −1 . Plants were acclimated

). Strategies such as breeding for winter cultivars and developing methods to regulate flowering seasons are being implemented to produce winter crops. Theoretically, night breaking by using supplemental light might lead to winter fruit production ( Yen and

. However, when supplemental light was applied, the standard deviations of DM, LA, and NL showed relatively small deviations from the mean data. These results suggest that both flowering uniformity and photosynthesis are affected by light energy input
