GrowON 2022 webinar series: lights, color, nutrients

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) produce single wavelengths of light. These can be combined (i.e. red, blue and amber light) to provide various spectra of light required for plants to make their own nutrients. Not all wavelengths are equally important; however, and it was unknown if LED light produced the same nutrients as natural light — until now. Dr. Cao will present his group’s latest research results that showed how different light spectra affect the nutritional composition of microgreens.
