Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) is one of the most important leafy vegetables worldwide and a model crop for studying the effect of lighting. Low light intensity during winter can increase the nitrate concentration in lettuce and other leafy greens to harmful levels for humans.
Two different light intensity levels were used in the vertical farm to study morphological, physiological, and commercial characteristics and compare them with those of plants cultivated in a standard hydroponic glasshouse during winter. The plants can be morphologically identical if an appropriate light intensity is applied, but vertical farms can guarantee safety when it comes to nitrate content. View this paper.
