Fantastic Light Quality Discussion For Vertical Farmers

Exclusive vertical farming content delivered straight to you? Sign up here.

This is one of the best and most accessible conversations on horticultural lighting I’ve seen. Farmer Tyler visits Dr. Ricardo Hernandez at North Carolina State University to learn about light quality research and its practical applications in horticulture.

This is a great follow up on our buying guide for the top LED light brands targeting vertical farming and Tyler wrote one of the most popular guest posts this site has ever seen about growing rare plants hydroponically so I knew it was going to be good before I even watched the video. See the trailer here, and scroll down for the full 43-minute interview.

I really like how they dive into the different types of light and how the plants actually react to them:

  • UV
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Far-red
  • etc.

Full interview:

A huge thank you to Farmer Tyler for letting me post this. Learn more about horticultural lighting at! You can also check out the original posting on urbanagnews, another great resource for people interested in vertical farming.
