Lettuce Trial under LUMO versus Clear glass YouTube play

Ongoing crop trials under LUMO’s light spectrum have been carried out since 2012. Four trial locations have spanned both research and commercial growing operations in low light and high light conditions. Tested crops have included vegetables, berries, herbs, cut flowers, and ornamental crops. The largest crop trial was located in a 5,000 ft2 commercial cucumber greenhouse in full production. In many cases, the results have shown equivalent growth under LUMO’s light spectrum, compared to a control crop. In some varieties, positive effects, such as earlier maturation, longer cycle time and disease resistance, were observed.
