Share this:

U.S. scientists Hans Spalholz and Dr. Ricardo Hernández of North Carolina State University’s Department of Horticultural Science in the USA are conducting research on the effects of light intensity on cannabis crops in a controlled environment. The study aims to find ideal supplemental lighting intensity for improving flower yields in cannabis. The project will gather data on the vegetative and flowering stages of plant development to identify effects on complete plant morphology. It will also evaluate differences in the flower cannabinoid and terpene profiles under supplemental light treatments in indoor versus greenhouse environments, to explore the impact of vegetative stage conditions on the final flower product.
