Effect of dim light irradiation on preservation of fresh lettuce



Effect of dim light irradiation on preservation of fresh lettuce



Science Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Kyushu University 55(2): 237-243



Fresh lettuce was stored for ~120 h at 5 or 20 degrees C under continuous illumination at 0 (darkness), 1.6, 3.4, 6.5, 13 or 19.7 micro mol m-2 second-1 photosynthetic photon flux. The light compensation point was ~3.4 micro mol m-2 second-1 at 5 degrees C, ~19.7 micro mol m-2 second-1 at 20 degrees C. The fresh weight of lettuce decreased due to the increased transpiration caused by the dim light.
