Rate of carnation shoot growth as affected by variation in light conditions during the season of high light intensity






Acta Horticulturae (43 (1)): 83-91

Rate of carnation shoot growth as affected by variation in light conditions during the season of high light intensity

Preliminary investigations are reported on variations in carnation shoot growth in Finland during the season of high light intensity. Weekly leaf growth was shown to depend on the stage of shoot growth. When shoots had 4-5 leaf pairs the leaf growth rate was highly correlated with the total amount of radiation (r = 0.991) and with the total blue, red and far-red radiation (r = 0.972).
