Effect of dim light on growth and photosynthetic ability of cabbage plug-transplants during low-temperature storage

Effect of dim light on growth and photosynthetic ability of cabbage plug-transplants during low-temperature storage

Environment Control in Biology 40(3): 317-320

We investigated the effect of dim light on the growth and photosynthetic ability of cabbage plug-transplants stored for 14 d at 10 degrees C. Transplants stored in darkness were elongated succulently by etiolation, and their leaf chlorophyll content and photosynthetic rate decreased. Both intermittent and continuous lighting at a photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) of 10 micro mol m-2 s-1 suppressed the succulent elongation.
