Composition of the shoot tissue of lettuce changes with environment. Light intensity or daily light integral affects the concentrations of nitrate, sugars, and other metabolites in various leafy green vegetables, including lettuce and spinach

( left ) compared with a sunny day ( right ) as measured by a quantum sensor. The four photoperiod (12, 15, 18, and 21 h) treatments all had a daily light integral of 12 mol·m −2 ·d −1 . Rudbeckia fulgida can be difficult to germinate with variable

Daily light integral is a measure of the total photosynthetic photon flux ( PPF ) density delivered over the course of 1 day. This measurement has proven to be an extremely useful tool for assessing the irradiance delivered to various horticultural

Growers of leafy greens in mid-latitude (40–50°) high tunnels who wish to extend their growing season past mid-autumn are faced with two significant challenges: low air temperatures, primarily at night, and low daily light integral (DLI) due to
