US: Update on leafy green trials with LEDs

On their corporate blog, Hort Americas posted an update on their LED leafy green trials withs Specialty Greens. As they approached the two week mark, Specialty Greens began to see significant differences. "There does not seem to be an appreciable difference between the two LED light set up and the three light set up", writes Hort Americas' Maria Luitjohan on the company's blog. "The main difference I am noticing is that there is a bit less color in the leaves of lettuce produced under the LED lights. There is however, amazing growth and in looking at the photos of the Mizuna leaves, it's clear that as a commercial grower, Specialty Greens could get two, possibly three harvests out in 30 days."
