February ( Korczynski et al., 2002 ). Supplemental lighting is often needed to produce high-quality crops in controlled-environment agriculture but can substantially increase production costs. For example, van Iersel and Gianino (2017) estimated that the

Supplemental lighting can improve the profitability of greenhouse crop production, and a better quantitative understanding of plant responses to PPFD can facilitate the development of more efficient crop-specific control strategies for greenhouse
