Plants in Space. Content in this section supports the concept of growing crops in space and the symbiotic relationship between plants and space travelers.

Plants in Space

Plants in space are beneficial for a number of reasons. They provide nourishment for the body when eaten as food, and they improve the quality of indoor air. Plants take the carbon dioxide from air to produce oxygen that humans can breathe. Find information about how plants, people, microbes and machines work together in self-contained space vehicles. Light Management for Controlled-Environment Agriculture. Cornell’s greenhouse project delivers tons of hydroponic lettuce grown under a computerized lighting system.

Light Management for Controlled-Environment Agriculture

Imagine harvesting crops in New York state in the dead of winter. At Cornell University, a hydroponic greenhouse project is making that happen. In the controlled environment, it takes 35 days to grow one head of hydroponic lettuce, yielding a potential harvest of 390 tons an acre per year. That’s a lot more than the 45 tons of in-ground lettuce per acre per year grown in California and harvested from three crops. Central to the Cornell project is the greenhouse’s computerized lighting system. In one way, plants “see” the world much as humans do. Specific wavelengths outside the photosynthetically active radiation band are important for morphological and flowering responses, but actual photosynthesis and growth are based on the number of photons (expressed as moles) received within the photosynthetically active radiation spectrum.

Abstract Lighting technologies for plant growth are improving rapidly, providing numerous options for supplemental lighting in greenhouses.

Economic Analysis of Greenhouse Lighting: Light Emitting Diodes vs. High Intensity Discharge Fixtures

Here we report the photosynthetic (400–700 nm) photon efficiency and photon distribution pattern of two double-ended HPS fixtures, five mogul-base HPS fixtures, ten LED fixtures, three ceramic metal halide fixtures, and two fluorescent fixtures. The two most efficient LED and the two most efficient double-ended HPS fixtures had nearly identical efficiencies at 1.66 to 1.70 micromoles per joule. How To Compare Grow Lights. If you are not familiar with the differences in PAR, PPF and PPFD – please read our article first to get the most out of the rest of the information provided here.

How To Compare Grow Lights

As a refresher, PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) simply means the light a fixture emits will promote photosynthesis in a plant. Important - PAR is not a metric; it is simply a type of light. PPF (Photosynthetic Photon Flux) is a critical metric that tells us how much light a fixture emits. It doesn’t measure the intensity at any location, but it tells us how many photos are coming out of the light every second. PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) tells us how much light is falling on a very specific location (i.e a specific leaf on your plant) every second. Photomorphogenesis Guide and Information. Considerations for Horticulture Lighting Beyond Photosynthesis There are certain important requirements for horticulture lighting, which are in addition to those for photosynthesis.

Photomorphogenesis Guide and Information

They stem from a multitude of other biochemical processes in the plants that are mediated by light. Some of these processes regulate key stages of plant development, such as germination and flowering. They depend strongly on the spectrum of the light and in some cases, also on the timing, periodicity and the overall exposure. The latter is usually called fluence, and is measured in micromoles of photons per square meter of surface.

In terms of spectrum dependence, by far the best understood today are the processes controlled by red and far red light. Photosynthesis Guide and Information. Photosynthetic Considerations for Horticulture Lighting There are certain important considerations when choosing a light source for horticulture lighting.

Photosynthesis Guide and Information

The first group relates to the wavelength range and amount of light needed for photosynthesis, which is the fundamental metabolic process in plants. A common misconception is that since chlorophyll absorbs light predominantly in the red and blue parts of the spectrum (leading to the green color of plant leaves), green light is not used by plants in photosynthesis. In reality, precise and independent measurements of the photosynthetic activity under different wavelengths by McCree and Inada have demonstrated clearly that green light is nearly as effective as blue light for a considerable number of crop plant species, with only small differences between their respective photosynthetic action spectra.

La lumière, la couleur et les plantes - Led horticoles. Comme vous devez déjà le savoir, les longueurs d'onde constituant une lumière, donc son spectre, ont une influence directe sur la santé et le développement de vos plantes.

La lumière, la couleur et les plantes - Led horticoles

Cela explique donc la multitude de panneaux LED du commerce dont on peut modifier le spectre. Nous avons donc l'avantage, avec la technologie LED, d'avoir une maitrise quasi totale de ces longueurs d'onde. En effet, en associant les LED en quantités et fréquences spécifiques, il est possible de produire presque exactement le spectre désiré. On distingue, dans le spectre visible (entre 380 et 780 nm), 7 couleurs primaires : rouge, orange, jaune, vert, bleu, indigo, violet.

Dans notre cas, nous allons également utiliser le terme "rouge profond" ou Far Red. Parmi les informations dont vous aurez besoin pour connaitre ce qui vous sera nécessaire en termes de panneaux, la composition de la lumière est une des principales. Voyons pourquoi ces différentes couleurs peuvent avoir un effet sur les végétaux et comment.
