What Effect Does Far-Red Light have on Plants?

It’s intimidating to choose the best lighting for growing plants, especially when there are so many factors to consider, like spectrum, lumens, PPFD, CRI, CCT, and more! Don’t know what those terms mean? We’ve already covered the basics of horticultural lighting, so read that first if you haven’t already. We are going to dive deeper into one of those factors – spectrum. Plants use photosynthetically active radiation (PAR; 400 – 700 nm) to drive photosynthesis. But plants use wavelengths outside of the PAR range – mainly UV and far-red light to understand and respond to their environment. Far-red light is radiation with wavelengths between 750 and 850 nm and it falls between the red and infrared regions of the spectrum.

Plants sense signals from their environment, such as light, that cause them to change their growth. Light is sensed using photoreceptors, like phytochrome. Phytochrome has an inactive (red light absorbing) and active form (far-red light absorbing), and it switches between the two forms based on the light conditions. The light conditions are often quantified by looking at the ratio of red light to far-red light (usually shortened to “R:FR”).

How much red (R) and far-red (FR) light is needed to make phytochrome switch back and forth? Well, it depends on many different factors, such as the species, growing conditions, and light intensity. In one often-used lab species, Arabidopsis, a R:FR of ~2 will switch phytochrome from inactive to active. A R:FR of ~0.25 will switch it back. Via phytochrome, far-red light controls seed germination, stem elongation, and flowering time.

The SolarSystem features the latest generation high-efficiency LEDs as well as the most versatile control system on the market. This system is perfect for a single light in a tent or several hundred lights in a large commercial operation.

The LED based grow light is the latest innovation in indoor horticulture that significantly reduces energy usage while improving plant quality. LED grow lights typically consume 50% less electricity than High Pressure Sodium (HPS) or Metal Halide (MH) based systems by only focusing the emitted light energy on the bands of the light spectrum that plants absorb the most.  LEDs are also more efficient light sources so they produce much less heat which means no additional cooling fans or risk of accidental fire. LEDs have a lifetime of over 50,000 hours. That’s over eight years under typical growing conditions without any bulbs to replace!

 

Features

  • Shorten the flowering cycle: allows dark period reduction in short day flowering plants.
  • Improves leaf size and yield in leafy plants like lettuce.
  • Promotes seed propagation.
  • Promotes elongation in long day flowering plants such as most flowers and vegetables.
  • Improves dark period growth and light adjustment in short day flowering plants.

  • 100 Watts Supplemental Far Red LED light (730 nm)
  • Dimensions: 21,6 x 21,6 x 10,16 cm (8,5'' x 8,5'' x 4'')
  • Power consumption (watts): 0 - 100
  • Auto Voltage: 90 - 277 V
  • Frequency: 50 - 60 Hz
  • LED Lifetime Rating: 50,000++
  • Electrical efficiency (μmol/J): 2.23
  • Spectrum: Phytochrome Based (''Far Red - 730nm'')
  • Coverage Area Bloom: Optimal: 120 x 120 cm (4' x 4') | Maximum: 150 x 150 cm (5' x 5')
  • Coverage Area VEG: 150 x 150 cm (5' x 5')
