Far Red Science – How it Works
- Exposure to red light (660nm) converts the chromoprotein to the functional or active form (Pfr), while darkness or exposure to far-red light (730nm) converts the chromophore to the inactive form (Pr).
- Plants grow toward sunlight because the red light from the sun converts the chromoprotein into the active form (Pfr), which triggers plant growth. Plants in shade grow slowly because the inactive form (Pr) is produced.
- Plants regulate photoperiodism by measuring the Pfr/Pr ratio at dawn, which then stimulates physiological processes for that day such as flowering, setting buds, and vegetative growth.
- Introducing far-red light after the lights have been turned off can shorten the number of hours needed in the night cycle to stimulate the flowering process.
