The use of LED technology is profoundly transforming the horticulture industry. The wavelength composition of LED lighting can be customized for either narrow band output with whatever spectral peaks or full spectrum radiation with whatever spectral ratios. LED grow lights are used to stimulate plant photoreceptors that drive photosynthetic activities, trigger photomorphogenic responses, or mediate photoperiodic signals.
An LED grow light is a horticulture lighting system that uses solid state lighting technology to deliver photosynthetically, photomorphogenically, and photoperiodically active radiation. Horticulture lighting, once a small niche in both the lighting and agriculture industries, is undergoing a...
