To better understand the needs of plants, it is helpful to visit scientific research documents, and other useful bits of knowledge.

Pursuit of knowledge can lead to new techniques and products.

Products properly informed by Scientific principals will display superior performance.

Techniques can be employed to improve horticultural productivity, improve the smell, taste and color of foods and ornamental crops , increased yields and the overall health and quality. Implementation can be useful in the Greenhouse, Outdoors and in the Greenhouse.

Emerson Effect Related:

  • Emerson Effect: (enhancement effect) The observation (made by Robert Emerson in 1957) that photosynthesis, which proceeds very slowly using light of 700 nm wavelength, can be greatly increased when chloroplasts are also illuminated with light of shorter wavelength (650 nm).
  • The EMERSON - Effect: The rate of photosynthesis after exposition to light of the wave length lambda = 670 nm and lambda = 700 nm, respectively. When simultaneously exposed to light of both wave lengths is the rate of photosynthesis increased (EMERSON - effect, at the right).
  • The Emerson Effect is the increase in the rate of photosynthesis after exposure to light of wavelength 670 nm far red light and 700 nm, red light respectively. When simultaneously exposed to light of both wavelengths the rate of photosynthesis increases.
