. Verkbert et al. (2004) recommend growing coleus at a minimum DLI of 9 mol·m −2 ·d −1 and no more than 18 mol·m −2 ·d −1 for high-quality plants. However, light tolerance varies among coleus cultivars; some cultivars are best grown in shade, while others

objective was to determine the effect of covering the orchard floor with different types of reflective film on orchard temperature, skin-color development, fruit quality, light canopy distribution, and crop profitability. Materials and methods Plant material

electric light sources is a crucial topic of discussion. Scholars have conducted numerous studies of photosynthetic photon flux density ( PPFD ), light quality, and photoperiods. A PPFD of 300 µmol·m −2 ·s –1 can significantly increase red perilla

maximizes the use of production area, shading at the lower level by the HB crop may be a significant challenge to the production of high-quality plants. Shading by HBs logically reduces the quantity of light reaching the lower crop and may also alter its
