LED 400W Single Bar smart grow light

PAR (photosynthetically effective radiation) describes the portion of the visible spectrum (400 nm-700 nm) that plants “see” and are used for photosynthesis. PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) measures the amount of light (PAR) a plant receives over time. PPFD represents the density of light received by plants over time and is measured in micromolars per square meter per second [photon]

What are PAR and PPFD in LED grow lights

One way to visualize PPFD is to imagine that the sun is "pouring" light onto plant leaves. As the sun shines light on plants, their leaves are gathering energy. 


PPFD is a measurement of the amount of light (photons) that the sun "pours" onto plants over time. PPFD is an important indicator because it helps growers accurately measure the light intensity of photosynthesis in the canopy. This is also important because lights that are too close to the canopy can cause burning, bleaching, growth retardation, or discoloration.
