Light Meters

Light has economic value!

As the driving force for photosynthesis, light is fundamentally important to crop production. Plant growth and development is significantly influenced by both the quantity and the quality of light. Light energy is relevant to other factors too. The ET calculation (evapotranspiration) for irrigation scheduling uses solar radiation as a key variable. Leaf wetness periods or high humidity, which affect disease pressure, can be mitigated with sunny days versus cloudy days. It is essential that growers understand this important variable in order to efficiently produce quality plants.
