Improving plant breeding offers solutions for the increasing demand for food production worldwide. Controlled environments are widely used during plant breeding processes and their use is further increasing. In those environments, both light quantity and quality play a vital role.
Appropriate fixture format and light quality can be used to steer and optimize plant growth. Plant growth can be guided throughout the breeding cycle, starting from the tissue culture. Uniform light distribution creates good growth conditions, even when light source is placed very close to the plants. Good light quality translates to good quality seedlings and low mortality rates. Reaching targets faster means more production and faster cycles.
