Supplemental light-emitting diode effects on the growth, fruit quality, and yield of two greenhouse-grown strawberry (Fragaria X ananassa) cultivars
Recent interest in off-season, greenhouse-grown food crops using supplemental top lighting(STL) has created opportunities for controlled environmental agriculture (CEA) production of high-value fruit crops such as strawberries (Fragaria X ananassa). Light-emitting diodes (LEDs)can be tailored to specific wavelengths to promote increased production and quality of greenhouse grown crops when used as STL. However, more research is needed to evaluate specific wavelengths of light that can promote increased strawberry fruit production and overall fruit quality in a greenhouse environment. The objectives ...
