Plant production and propagation under controlled environment, such as in greenhouses, micropropagation systems and Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS) applications are important. However, current light sources do not provide a completely satisfactory solution. Thus, development of a new light source for plant growth is needed. Because of the improvement in intensity and the development of blue light emitting diodes (LEDs), the application to plant growth has become a realistic approach. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the latest high-intensity LEDs as a light source for plant growth. Light intensity as a function of current and spatial distribution was measured.
