In vertical farming, plants are often grown hydroponically or aeroponically under rigidly controlled conditions. This allows for complete control of plant nutrient supply and potentially delivers optimal plant growth, harvest yield and food quality. It is, however, vital that fertilization strategies are carefully designed to match plant demands of all 14 essential plant nutrients throughout the whole growth period. This does represent a major challenge when nutrient solutions are recirculated – not least in systems relying on organic fertilizers.

Light Spectra make a difference for plant growing, especially in sole-source applications like vertical farming. Multiple discussions and publications exist how different light spectra influence plant growth of different cultivars. This presentation is guiding through spectral effects to crop performances as well is questioning the relevance of spectral tuning in vertical farms.
