CJ65 Blue LED Lights on the Production of Strawberry LEDでイチゴ栽培

Inquiry

Print

Synopsis
Strawberries normally bud and fruit around four times in a season. But growing them under these blue LEDs, they bear fruits about six times. The harvest is 1.5 times greater. However, the blue LEDs used here are not blue.
Actually, these blue LEDs are painted with yellow fluorescent paint to make them white. The strawberry farmers harvest much of their crop while it's still dark. By whitening the blue light, it is brighter than fluorescent lights.

Keyword: strawberry, blue LED
