Shedding New Light on Phytochrome Manipulation
New study will explore the epigenetic and chemical impact of different lighting regimes in hemp
Phytochrome manipulation is common in indoor grows and involves using different wavelengths of light to help control the plants' circadian rhythms and maximize yield.
Researchers from the Collaborative Laboratories for Environmental Analysis and Remediation (CLEAR) at the University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas at El Paso, genetics company ZED Therapeutics, and Curtis Mathes Grow Lights are joining forces to examine how different lighting protocols affect phytochemical profiles in a bid to better understand how phytochrome manipulation works and how we can harness it.
We caught up with one of the project leaders, Zacariah Hildenbrand (Research Professor, University of Texas at El Paso), to find out more.
