Research and Other Documents Relevant to Grow Lighting and Horticulture.


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.

  • Annual Reviews publications are among the most highly cited in the scientific literature, and are available in print and online to individuals, institutions, and consortia throughout the world.
  • Plant Science Power Point Presentations: Over 30 academic starting with plant identification. It's like taking a course

    Light, PAR, Chlorophyll and Photosynthesis:
  • An artificial solar spectrum substantially alters plant development compared with usual climate room irradiance spectra.
  • Par action spectrum.
  • THE BASIC NEEDS FOR PHOTOSYNTHESISPlants can take small molecules from the environment and bind them together using the energy of light. The incoming light energy is transformed into the energy holding the new molecules together, and the organisms use those molecules as an energy "fuel." The basic process can be represented this way.
  • Why do some plants appear green? Green plants are green because they contain a pigment called chlorophyll.
  • Light Absorption for PhotosynthesisPhotosynthesis depends upon the absorption of light by pigments in the leaves of plants. The most important of these is chlorophyll-a, but there are several accessory pigments that also contribute.
