That said, temperature tends to be the largest influencer on yield during swap-outs—not source of light! In greenhouses, watch your canopy temperature and adjust accordingly. For indoor grows, increase facility temperature around 10o F to account for the heat loss you will notice when switching to LED; then tweak as necessary.
No. It may have value in the lab when determining the best recipe for a new strain. Once determined, uniformity is critical—not variance. Keep tunable fixtures in the lab, uniform fixtures everywhere else.
