Customized LED Light Promotes Plant Growth, Boosts Nutritional Value

Engineered light—light that is intentionally controlled in time, space, and spectral content—can improve lighting and elicit various hormonal responses, thereby helping to regulate human health and productivity, say researchers from Sandia National Laboratories.

Findings from their study show that tailored LED wavelengths and intensities can efficiently stimulate plant growth, alter their shapes, and increase their nutritional value, which could potentially open the door to indoor farming.
