The importance of light quality in CEA systems

Spectrum has an important impact on plant growth, morphology, and development. Plants have evolved a sophisticated photoreceptor system capable of perceiving small changes on the light spectrum. Plants use spectral changes as information to adapt and increase survival and reproduction. Therefore, by understanding plant-light interactions, we are able to use light as a tool to change plant responses to meet human needs. The newest GLASE presentation will outline the importance of light quality and provide examples of the commercial applicability of spectral manipulation.

Dr. Ricardo Hernandez is an assistant professor at North Carolina State University focused on Controlled Environment Agriculture research and teaching (https://ceh.cals.ncsu.edu/). He has worked in the field of spectral optimization for over 10 years. In addition to his academic appointment, Ricardo is also a co-founder of two start-ups focused on the use of controlled environment technology and strategies to produce young plants.
