When it comes to greenhouses, not all light is equal, according to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) scientist Dr. Xiuming Hao, who is researching how light quality can impact plant growth and nutritional value at the Greenhouse and Processing Crops Research Centre in Harrow.
“Light quality refers to actual spectrum composition of the light, which largely influences plant growth, fruit yield and quality, and the production of health promoting compounds,” explains Dr. Hao. “Light spectrum compositions have not been explored much for how they improve plant growth and fruit yield and quality.”
“We are investigating various vertical light spectrum profiles to identify those which improve both fruit yield and nutritional value of greenhouse vegetables. Our ultimate goal is to develop sustainable year-round production strategies to optimize lighting, fruit yield, fruit attributes, and to support the Canadian greenhouse industry.”
