The research which was on the effect of LED and ultraviolet light on strawberries, rosemary, cucumber, as well as a string of other fruit and vegetables, showed that the light reduce pathogens whilst increasing production. Human beings require light to be able to live and so do pathogens, as pathogens are living entities therefore they also require light to regulate their daily growth and development. The LEDs can be controlled to produce a particular spectrum of light that utilizes what is required for production and to eliminate pathogens. more
