How to choose LED plant lamp for growing vegetables?

LED plant lamps are used in combination with light saturation point and light compensation point of different plants. The light saturation point and light compensation point of plants vary with crop species and cultivation conditions. Some negative plants reach light saturation with less than 10,000 Lux, while positive plants need tens of thousands of lux to reach saturation. Some four-carbon plants (c-port plants are usually not fully saturated at noon when the sunlight is direct (about 100,000 Lux), and generally the light saturation point of three-carbon (Ca) plants is lower than that of four-carbon (C,) plants. The light compensation point and light saturation point of several common crops are listed below:

LED plant lamps are selected according to light saturation point

As can be seen from the above, if plants are planted in the process of growth due to the lack of sunlight environment, such as basement, balcony planting. Artificial light (plant lamps) is needed to replace the sun’s rays to provide the energy needed for photosynthesis for plant growth. The light intensity of the required light source must reach above the light compensation point required by the plant to grow normally.

Below the light compensation point, the plant grows in vain, or grows slowly; Above the light saturation point, the photosynthetic rate did not increase, and the phenomenon of light inhibition occurred, resulting in the waste of light energy. Between light intensity saturation point and light compensation point, using LED plant growth lamp to plant fruits and vegetables can promote plant photosynthesis, shorten the growth cycle, come to market 10-20 days earlier, increase production and income 20-80%, promote flower and fruit, improve fruit setting rate, prevent insects and diseases, reduce malformed fruit, and improve the taste, sweetness, quality and appearance of fruit. This is why the use of plant growth lights does not work. If the temperature, humidity, water, fertilizer and co2 concentration are all normal, the biggest reason is that the light intensity of LED plant lights is lower than the plant’s light compensation point. There are two reasons for the low light intensity:
1. LED plant lamps themselves have low luminous intensity, so the solution is to replace or add lamps
2. LED plant lamps themselves have high luminous intensity, but they are too far away from the plants, so that the light intensity reaches the leaf surface and is lower than the plant’s light compensation point. Solution: Lower the height of the lamp.

The intensity of photosynthesis of any crop is closely related to the intensity of light. Its photosynthetic intensity changes with the light intensity trend is similar, the light enhancement, the photosynthesis increases, the light attenuation, the photosynthesis decreases. But when the light intensifies to a certain degree, the photosynthetic intensity does not increase any more, and then the light intensity is the light cooperative light saturation point. When the light is reduced to a certain limit, the photosynthetic intensity cannot be measured (the ratio of photosynthetic intensity and respiratory intensity is exactly equal, which is 1), then the light intensity is called the light cooperative light compensation point.
