case0901: Effects of Light on Meadowfoam Flowering

Description Usage Format Source Examples

Description

Meadowfoam is a small plant found growing in moist meadows of the US Pacific Northwest. Researchers reported the results from one study in a series designed to find out how to elevate meadowfoam production to a profitable crop. In a controlled growth chamber, they focused on the effects of two light–related factors: light intensity and the timeing of the onset of the ligth treatment.
