Light Spectra make a difference for plant growing, especially in sole-source applications like vertical farming. Multiple discussions and publications exist how different light spectra influence plant growth of different cultivars. This presentation is guiding through spectral effects to crop performances as well is questioning the relevance of spectral tuning in vertical farms.
