High Light Intensities for Experiments in Crop Physiology

Naturevolume 166page35 (1950) | Download Citation



ATTENTION has recently been devoted in this Department to the development of a growth cabinet in which the environment can be controlled, eventually for use in pasture research in New Zealand. For this purpose the critical requirement is high light intensity with the quality of daylight, over an area large enough for adequate replication of the experimental plants. It is the experience of plant physiologists that it is difficult to obtain such lighting without the complications caused by excessive radiation. The following note may therefore be of interest.
