Supplemental lighting during the middle of the night (mid-night lighting) promotes growth of some leafy vegetables. In this study, we investigated the effects of different intensities of mid-night lighting on the growth of spinach, and the correlation between phytohormones and bolting under mid-night lighting. Plants were exposed to lighting from 23:00 to 7:00 the next morning. The top fresh weight of spinach under high (100 μmolm-2s-1) and low (10 μmolm-2s-1) light intensities was...[Show more]
