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

seedlings does not affect the photosynthetic light response. The seedlings was grown under FL H or FL L for 4, 6, and 8 d after the cotyledons had fully expanded, and then P n of them was measured at a PPFD of 1000 μmol·m −2 ·s −1 . Measuring methods

where the background PPFD is often far less than the saturation intensity. This study aims at exploring how plant growth responds to additional UV-A radiation in a controlled environment and whether plant growth exhibits a dose response under UV-A

cropping cycles of ornamental plants grown in controlled environments. One approach to enhancing growth is to include far-red light (λ = 700–800 nm) in the spectrum because 1) far-red light can trigger a shade-avoidance and/or acclimation response

:1:1 ratio based on volume. Potted plants were grown in a shaded greenhouse under three daily maximum photosynthetic photon flux densities ( PPFD ) of 285, 350, and 550 μmol·m −2 ·s −1 , which resulted from the installation of shadecloth with three different

.23, 26% higher than that of the plants without supplemental light (0.17). Plant height increased linearly from 12.8 to 14.6 cm (14%) as photoperiods increased from 12 to 21 h ( Fig. 4A ). This suggests plants elongated as a shade response to lower PPFD

the ratio of R to FR radiation, can evoke the shade-avoidance response to modify morphological traits ( Franklin, 2008 ). A typical green leaf of plants grown in growth chambers absorbed ≈92% of B radiation (450 nm), 92% of R radiation (660 nm), and 81

cultivars of strawberry only flower and bear fruit during specific times of the year as a result of corresponding daylength. This phenomenon is referred to as the photoperiod response. However, certain strawberry cultivars produce flowers and fruit
